NIE AUCTION ITEM #117 - Seaside Necklace







~~~~Seaside Necklace- strung on 18 " grass green beaded cord with sterling clasp



From the Artist: "This seaside charm is a shortie. Charm measures 9/16" x 1/2" high.

The pewter I cast with is the finest quality lead and antimony free pewter. After some extensive research I decided on this alloy that includes silver, copper, bismuth and tin. I have found that this pewter alloy is strong, bright and has a gorgeous luster. It is also slow to tarnish unlike other pewter I have worked with. If your pewter does tarnish over time, it is easily polished with a simple pewter polish available at most department stores."


About the Artist: "All my artwork has been designed and cast by my own two hands. I sculpt, mold, cast, grind and polish each piece. All my little beads and buttons are well loved. Due to the handcrafted nature of my work, there will be slight variations on each piece. That's what I call the good stuff. The lovin'.

Many of my works have my fingerprints visible. I absolutely love the personal "touch" this gives my beads and buttons and intentionally leave them on."
**THIS ITEM WILL BE SHIPPED TO THE WINNER DIRECTLY FROM THE ARTIST**


Donated by: D'Arsie Manzella
Value: $18.00
