A pretty handmade sterling silver necklace with a delicate silver bird sitting on a branch with her chick(s)
This lovely necklace is ideal as a gift to a Mother, Grandmother or as a special treat for yourself.
The necklace is handmade and the birds are carefully cut out of sterling silver sheet using a jeweller's saw and therefore each one is unique. The Mother bird sits on a sterling silver wire branch with tiny silver leaves and copper berries at each end. Her chick(s) dangle freely off the branch.
All pieces are entirely handmade to order and vary in size and length. Up to four chicks can be added to represent the number of children in the family. Each chick can be left blank or personalised with one single letter, e.g The initial of their first name.
The initial is hand stamped with a 2mm high capital letter. In the Special Instructions to Seller box on Shipping Cart, write the initials in the order you want them hand stamped on the chicks. The first initial will be hand stamped on the chick closest to the mother bird. As the letters are hand stamped and not engraved any irregularities and indentations are part of the charm and character of the piece.
A delicate silver link chain is soldered to each end of the branch to make up the necklace, which has a small bolt ring catch at the back of the neck. You can choose to have a 40cm, 45cm or 50cm length chain in the option section.
Each item of jewellery is sent in a white gift box and can be gift wrapped for free in complimenting paper and a ribbon bow ( I find this survives the post best.)
A printed gift note is available on request when placing your order or a hand written gift card can also be added if you message me and it can all be posted direct to a lucky recipient.
Each piece is solid british 925 sterling silver which is prone to tarnishing so please try and keep your jewellery packaged away in its box when not being worn, ideally in acid free tissue paper. Avoid contact with make up, perfumes, creams on the skin and water or chlorine as these may cause the silver to blacken.
To clean the necklace I would recommend buffing it with a silver polishing cloth and occasionally dipping it in Goddard's silver dip (available at most supermarkets) Please do not prolong contact with the dip and thoroughly rinse your piece, ideally gently scrubbing with a soft toothbrush and some washing up liquid before completely drying it.
The length of the branch is approximately 4cm long and 1.5mm diameter. The Mother bird is approximately 1.5cm x 1.5cm and the chick(s) are approximately 1cm x 1cm. The initial on the chick is 2mm high.
If you have any specific requests regarding the size and shape of the necklace or length of the chain, please message me direct.
