Artisan Mixed Metal Necklace

Bitchin Retro


Rock your inner Wonder Woman with this unique artisan necklace in brass with mixed metal overlays. The copper layer has a rainbow patina showing pinks, aqua blues and purples. This is achieved by heating up the copper until the desired color forms, and immediately cooling it down. It is an art form all in itself to achieve this peacock patina. A one-of-a-kind statement necklace.

6" wide x 6 3/4" long. Mixed Metal portion is 4 5/8" wide x 1" wide. (Varies with design.) 

We clean, inspect and return vintage treasures to their best possible condition. Decades of old makeup, dirt and dust are removed and pieces receive a light polish. This process takes many attempts and sometimes hours of work. This is in stark contrast to most sellers. Our vintage jewelry is ready to wear, and in the best possible condition we were able to provide. It is a labor of love, and we think it shows in our photos and in person.

Bitchin Retro Notes: This necklace is in excellent pre-owned condition, has been thoroughly cleaned, and given a light polish. As an artisan piece, there are slight variances in the bend of the wire, and overlays. We list this as pre-owned as we have not been able to identify the signature or mark. We believe this is an artisan piece, and probably from the 1980's, but until we know for sure, we are listing it as pre-owned. Please see condition descriptions below.

Pre-owned jewelry is rarely perfect. We will do our best to note any obvious flaws, but flea bites, and small scratches are to be expected. Please view all photos with zoom to see characteristics of this listing, and note the measurements provided, as we use a telephoto lens to show as much visual detail as we can. This may enhance both size perception and imperfections actually not visible without magnification, but allows you to see the quality of the piece. We would be happy to answer any questions, or provide additional photos.

Condition Descriptions:

Excellent = very little to no visible wear, though minimal flea bites/scratches may be seen thru a loupe.

Very Good = normal wear and tear typical for the age which can be seen up close, as well as flea bites/scratches seen thru a loupe.

Average = significant wear seen with and without a loupe. We will note specifics and provide photos. 

We want you to be happy with your purchase, and have provided information to highlight the features and any imperfections or vintage love on our pieces. We also share condition descriptions (and lots of pictures) so that you are aware of how we arrived at our opinion. If despite our best efforts we miss something, we will be happy to work with you. 

Give us an opportunity to make it right...because we will.
