Important for customers outside of the EU: This item cannot be shipped in a normal padded envelope so has a higher shipping cost. The shipping cost will be added at checkout. If you live outside of the European continent or the USA, please contact before ordering so we can check what the most affordable shipping method is to your country.

Please note, this item is custom made to order and each one will be slightly different! When ordering, please let me know in the order notes which colour(s) you would like for the pendant.

See the photos for the customisable options.

Please note because this item needs to be custom made to order, it can take up to 4 weeks before it is shipped.

This eye-catching necklace is made with a real orchid flower that has been electroformed in copper and can be made with the colour finish of your choice! The flower will forever be preserved inside the copper. Read more about electroforming on the “About Electroforming” tab.

The necklace has an adjustable length of 45-50cm. If you would like a different length, just add it to your order notes.

The last photo shows the colours available for the pendant finish – you can choose up to 3 specific colours (add this to your order notes), or just indicate that you want for example “pink and blue” and let me choose. If you don’t specify any colours, I will make the pendant to match the bead colours you chose.Β  Please note that the colour options are only indicative of the possible final result and may look different on the finished piece due to mixing of the colours as I apply them. It is absolutely impossible to exactly replicate the pendants shown in the photos and these serve as examples of previous work only.

Although all care has been taken to ensure that the pendant is durable, please treat this wearable art piece with care, as bending the different parts of the pendant or dropping it may cause it to break.

All metal findings used in this design apart from the pendant are stainless steel. The copper pendant is coated with Everbrite coating which means that it is safe for people with metal allergies, and will not tarnish!

 

If you would like a different necklace style (i.e. not with the 3 beads on each side and chain) please contact before ordering, as this can affect the price.

About electroforming

What is electroforming?
Electroforming is the chemical process of permanently plating metal (in this case, copper) onto a non-metal object. This is done by using a rectifier to send an electrical current through the electroforming solution to transfer copper from an anode to a cathode (the object to be plated with copper). This is a specialised process that can take anywhere from 8 to 24+ hours to complete a single pendant. After the object has been electroformed, it can be treated with a patina to create different colours and after this it is sealed with a protective coating to ensure that the pendant does not oxidise further.

Electroformed Jewellery Care
Each electroformed jewellery piece is made with organic materials and copper and finished with a patina and then coated using EverBrite’s ProtectaClear coating. ProtectaClear is a skin-safe, anti-tarnish clear coating that is practically invisible and will protect your jewellery from tarnish, oxidation and fading. It also makes the jewellery hypoallergenic and will help prevent metal allergies. However, due to the acidity of skin, this coating can sometimes wear off over time. If this happens, you can apply a coat of varnish or clear nail polish to seal it again if needed. To prolong the life of the coating and protect your electroformed jewellery pieces:
* Do not use solvent such as xylene or acetone to clean your jewellery, either use a jewellery cloth, or rinse with water and pat dry immediately.
* Do not shower, swim, sleep, or exercise while wearing your jewellery.
* Do not wear your jewellery while applying hairspray, lotions, or other skincare products.
* Store your electroformed jewellery pieces in a plastic bag when not in use.

ProtectaClear is a skin-safe, anti-tarnish clear coating that is practically invisible and will protect your jewellery from tarnish, oxidation and fading. It also makes the jewellery hypoallergenic and will help prevent metal allergies. However, due to the acidity of skin, this coating can sometimes wear off over time.

To prolong the life of the coating:
* Do not use solvent such as xylene or acetone to clean your jewellery, either use a jewellery cloth, or rinse with water and pat dry immediately.
* Do not shower, swim, sleep, or exercise while wearing your jewellery.
* Do not wear your jewellery while applying hairspray, lotions, or other skincare products.
* Store your electroformed jewellery pieces in a plastic bag when not in use.

Please note: The patina (colour) is not lightfast, meaning that prolonged sun exposure (UV rays) will fade it. It is therefore advised to keep the jewellery piece out of direct sunlight as much as possible to preserve the beautiful colours.

These care instructions are included with each order.
