Bullhead and Feathers Southwestern Necklace in Copper Sterling Silver and Brass
Venturing into handcrafting with local themes and scenes, this rustic cowboy/cowgirl necklace features a bullhead in sterling silver with brass feathers fused to a copper backing medallion. Each element is sawed entirely by hand using a fine fret saw and outlined with a dark patina to create a transition between each metal.
► The copper medallion measures approximately 1.3 inches in diameter and hangs from an adjustable US sourced black leather cord with slip knots. Ball chains and sterling silver link chains are also available upon request.
►To personalize your medallion with engraving on the backside such as names and dates for those creative gift ideas, simply enter your requests in the checkout notes.
►The necklace was handmade by sawing the skull from 18 gauge sterling silver, the feathers from 20 gauge brass, and pressing the medallion disc from 17 gauge hard copper. Using an acetylene torch and sterling silver solder, the skull and feathers were sweat soldered to the copper backing disc before applying a dark patina. Extensive polishing allows the grooves along with transitional boundaries to remain dark for added contrast that also serves to create dimension.
