Richly plated brass stampings are joined for eternity to create this impressive mythical winged lion Statement necklace. The plating is copper with a bit of rose gold, lighter and fresher-looking than the more common 'copper ox' finish. The eyes are set with Swarovski crystals in the incomparable orange 'Sun' color. Beneath dangles a beautiful topaz AB glass bead beneath a beautiful bead cap in the same luxe plating. The chain is solid copper.
This piece works with several styles, blending well with Victorian and Steampunk, with an Old World, Neo-Classical vibe. From 'leather jacket and jeans' to CosPlay! It would make a very strong statement worn with business attire, as well.
The entire piece was cold-connected - the only glue used was to set the eyes. Closes securely with a copper plated lobster claw clasp. This piece is built to last for generations, as strong as the majestic creature it portrays. All of the metal is brass, made in America and lead- and nickel-free.
The focal measures about 7-1/2 inches across the wingtips with a drop of nearly 4 inches from the top of the lion's head. It is designed to be worn at the base of the throat, framed by a V-neck. Adjustable length, to about 22 inches long.
Modeled by Victoria, my hungry-looking mannequin, in the green patina brass finish. Other colors and finishes available, as well as sizes: https://www.etsy.com/shop/FANTASTICALITYbyRTD/search?search_query=lion&order=date_desc&view_type=gallery&ref=shop_search
Like all my jewelry, this piece was hand crafted in my home studio in Tacoma, WA.
