Reversible Riveted Textured Copper & Lithograph Tin Torus Necklace

Regular price $35.00

I made the pendant by riveting a piece of lithograph tin to a piece of copper I'd textured with vintage lace..  Lithography is a printing method dating to the 1790s.  During the early/mid-20th century, it was used to produce brightly colored toys, TV trays, lunch boxes, candy containers, doll houses & other items.  The chain is copper curb link, with a riveted disc at the back (made with the same tin & copper as the pendant).  The necklace is adjustable at 16”, 17.25”& 18.5” around; the pendant measures 1” x 2”.
