Welsh Terrier Copper Necklace
The Welsh Terrier originates from Wales and was originally bred for hunting fox, rodents, and badger, but during the last century it has mainly been bred for showing. Despite this, it has retained its terrier strength of character.
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 copper on an 18" cord.
