Welsh Corgi Brass Necklace
The Welsh Corgi is a small type of herding dog that originated in Wales. Sometimes just known as a Corgi, two separate breeds are recognized: the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. There are physical differences between the two. According to the breed standards, overall, the Cardigan is larger, both in weight and in height.
Each item begins as a piece of sheet metal, copper, bronze, brass or nickel. After a pattern is transferred to the metal, the piece is etched in a salt-water solution. Each piece is hand cut, sanded, and polished. A patina may be applied or it may be hand painted with dye oxide. A clear polymer coating is applied.
This piece is brass on an 18" cord.
