**ORDERING FOR CHRISTMAS**
To avoid disappointment, please order as soon as you can – as an artisan silversmith I can only make so many orders during the Christmas period without the help of Elves which - as we know - are tied up elsewhere. Plus , I won’t be discounting my bespoke, handmade work in the weeks ahead.
The solid copper fob is both oxygen and phosphorous free.
The silver fob is .925 solid sterling silver, which is harder and more durable sterling silver and not PMC, Fine silver (99.9) or recycled silver.
CARE: Buff with a silver polishing cloth to prevent tarnish. The copper will begin to oxidise and have a darker patina, just polish with a bit of Brasso to keep it shiny!
The copper and silver fobs are planished and hand-domed to give the lovely dappled appearance. Planishing is a metalworking technique that involves finely shaping the surface with a planishing hammer.
The fob will be hand-stamped; as hand stamping isn't uniform, the variation in spacing and alignment is part of the bespoke nature of this hand-worked item.
The Copper fob measures 3.3cm and the Sterling Silver fob is 3cm in diameter and 1mm thick.
The stainless steel split ring is 3.3cm in diameter.
