1/2" across & 1-1/4" in length copper distressed cross hung on a silver-plated necklace. The cross is made by cutting/stamping them out of a sheet of copper. It is cut in the shape of a cross and has unique accents stamped into the design. To distress them I use an oxidizing agent in more than one color to create the patina that you see. I seal the patina to preserve it for many years.
I used a silver-plated chain with a silver lobster clasp. The silver plating will not wear off under normal circumstances. I use silver and silver plated as metals can cause a reaction in your skin.
To clean just wipe gently with a damp cloth and hang them to dry.
