Wirewrapped Heart Pendant
A playful experiment in wire wrapping... a challenging technique with hard stainless steel wire!
The large heart is hand shaped with thick 18 gauge wire, which is then interwoven with spiraled 20 gauge wire using thread-like 24 gauge wire.
Natural agate stone beads make up the heart's center.
Pendant is just shy of 2" wide x 2" tall.
Jump ring can stay in the center or be moved to one side, depending on the look you'd like. Tell me in the notes to seller where you'd like it to be.
This listing is for the pendant - handmade chain shown is sold separately.
Made from parrot safe* food grade stainless steel wire.
Free from heavy metals & potential toxins to your birds; hypoallergenic for the humans.
My stainless steel wire is manufactured in Canada.
Pretty, Eco friendly packaging!
Your order is packaged in a recyclable packaging and shipped in a crush-proof box.
Do you have a feather baby? Let me know in the notes to seller!
*** Parrot safe does not mean parrot-proof: strong beaks can still damage FeatherWhipped handmade jewelry... They just won't get heavy metal toxicity while doing it ;) The same potential injury & choking hazard applied if your bird plays with this jewelry. This is not a parrot toy :)
Why Parrot Safe?
Companion parrots often die from heavy metal toxicity due to playing with jewelry. It's known that costume jewelry can be high enough in lead & cadmium to be toxic to children, but in my research I discovered that even high quality jewelry components are full of zinc, copper, lead & tin. Most jewelry components are brought in from China with no MSDS sheets (or even manufacturing company name!) to check what is in the material. Even with 304 and 316 stainless steel parts!
I spent an entire year sourcing out 304 stainless steel and food grade aluminum made in north america with MSDS sheets to confirm they they were pure, clean & safe to protect my flock and yours :)
