Sterling silver blackened matte finish W 65mm X H 50mm.
This brooch is hand made to order. The embossing is achieved by etching one of my drawings into a copper plate. This copper plate is then used to create the embossing onto the silver. For enquiries please email.

Sterling Silver is stamped 925. This stamp means it is 925 parts pure silver out of 1000. The remaining in made up of copper which helps give silver added strength and durability. Sterling Silver is a sort after metal for its light almost white colour. Here the sterling silver is oxidised a beautiful rich black. This oxidisation is a surface treatment that wears over time to expose the silver beneath adding depth and character to the piece.

Clean at home using warm water and a very soft nylon bristle brush like a soft tooth brush as it will not scratch the metal. Avoid using any abrasive cleansers or detergents.
