bronze mini parakeet skull necklace
Tiny adorable parakeet skulls! I made a mold of a real parakeet skull, then shrunk it down using a special casting compound. The resulting skull is a tiny version of the original, measuring just over 1/2" long (not including the jumpring).
These bronze pieces are handmade by me every step of the way in my tiny metal shop, using the lost wax casting method.
Comes on an 18" gunmetal plated brass chain. If you prefer a different length, let me know at checkout and I'll be happy to make it for you.
Like all of my jewelry, these come packaged in one of my kraft hand stamped jewelry box.
Bronze will tarnish naturally over time, I suggest cleaning them periodically with a jewelry polishing cloth when you want to bring back the original shine. These sorts of cloths remove tarnish but leave the dark patina in all the nooks and crannies that bring out textures and details. Tarnish removing liquid solutions will remove both tarnish and patina.
