PLAGUE DOCTOR necklace

(1 customer review)

£29

The necklace is long (73cm; 5mm braid) and the pendant is massive (H: 5.5cm, W: 2cm).

Description

TECHNIQUE & FINDINGS

To create this ethical necklace made of ultra-soft alpaca yarn I used a technique known as thread wrapping. This technique consists of artfully wrapping alpaca yarn around a cotton core by hand. Thanks to this, the beauty and extraordinary softness of alpaca fleece are presented in a unique way.

The necklace is finished with a stainless steel lobster clasp and has an extension chain (4 cm).

MATERIALS
– ETHICAL BABY ALPACA yarn (100%)
– cotton cord
– stainless steel

SURGICAL STEEL

Surgical stainless steel has a hypoallergic formula. Surgical steel is not the same as alpaca or cheap metal. Unlike silver or gold, it does not require maintenance, cleaning and care, so you can enjoy its beauty and gloss without much effort. The surface is resistant to oxidation and corrosion. The components don’t start to smell or tarnish after time.

PACKAGING

The pieces will arrive in one of my pouches. All the materials I use for packaging are environmentally friendly and recycled, from the acid-free tissue paper to the unbleached postal box it arrives in. Ideal as a gift for your mother, sister, partner.
