Copper & Suspended Lithograph Tin Disc Necklace

Regular price $35.00

I made the pendant with copper that I textured with vintage lace & patinated with liver of sulfur. Within it, I suspended a piece of vintage lithograph tin that I cut out & domed. Lithography is a method of printing that dates back to the 1790s. During the early & mid-20th century, lithography was used to produce brightly colored tin that was used in toys, TV trays, lunch boxes, candy containers, doll houses & other items. The chain is vintage flat silvertone cable. The necklace length is adjustable at 17” or 18” around, excluding the pendant, which measures 2.5”.
