Bold and beautiful, my Assemblage Medallions are created from a variety of vintage and antique salvaged metal: washers, coins, spoons, kitchen utensils, belt buckles, salt shaker lids, icing tips, thimbles, cookie dies, and of course BUTTONS too. Just about everything gets SMASHED!!
These focal necklaces are larger and more complex than my smashed button pendants but created in the same way, assembled with metalworking techniques such as rivets, staples, tabs or thru compression. They are not glued, so you can be assured it will not come apart. I often add hand-assembled chains made from a variety of recycled vintage chains.
About this Smashing Medallion
A teardrop shaped brass stamping is the starting point for this piece. I added a heat patina give it a rainbow finish. To this I've added two smashed buttons in the center with a copper rivet. The brass stamping is thin, so this piece is very lightweight, tho large.
This is an original design, handmade from recycled materials. No glue is used in the construction, all metalworked with metal rivets.
- Size: 1.5" x 2"
Stack of 3 pieces
Metals: Brass and Steel
- Construction: Brass rivets (never glued)
- Handmade in the USA
Sealed with acrylic so the patina will not change.
CHAIN: Comes on a super long 35" anodized rainbow colored chain. This can easily be cut shorter with scissors. If you'd like a different finish chain, just put a note with your order.
