Heirloom Initial CharmRegular price $38.00
Inspired by my belief that if you want to create something new, look to the past. Handmade jewelry from ancient times, particularly in Italy and especially Pompeii, inspired the look of this necklace. Created to look antique, as if found perfectly preserved amongst an archaeological treasure hunt.
Featuring initials in a classic calligraphy font and measuring about half an inch each, these handmade Heirloom Initial charms are glazed in high fire glaze. The pendant charm is fired a third time with 22k gold luster overglaze on the top. Jump rings are 14/20 gold filled. Each pendant will vary somewhat in color and finish as each are handmade. These Charms are designed to naturally weather over time to achieve that antique effect.

Made of high fire ceramic stoneware and glazed with high fire glaze, then a low fire gold luster overglaze in 22K.
We recommend gently hand washing with a microfiber cloth as 22k gold is a soft, precious metal and harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaning products can scratch it over time.
Framed Intaglios & Originals
I recommend a dry environment away from extreme temperatures. Use soft microfiber cloth for dusting and wiping the glass.
Ceramic Picture Frames
Each piece is made of low fire clay and needs to be handled with care. Clean the inside and outside by laying the frame and gently wipe with microfiber cloth.
Ceramic Jewelry Care
Jewelry pieces are made from clay with 22k gold luster accents, read the product listing to learn more about the jewelry chain or earring posts. Due to the nature of being made from clay they are fragile and should be handled with care. In order to ensure the longevity of each piece I recommend avoiding sleeping with, swimming with, or shower with the jewelry.
Fine Jewelry Care
Sterling Silver Widow's Mite
While cleaning this piece be gentle with the 22k gold luster ceramic widow's mite coin that’s encased by sterling silver. Clean the sterling silver by rinsing well in clear hot water and hand-dry immediately and thoroughly. For silver that is tarnished, clean with a good quality silver polish and avoid "dip" polishes.
This necklace is meant to be worn however we recommend taking it off if you are swimming, showering, or playing contact sports.
Clean the necklace by mixing a small amount of mild dish detergent with warm water in a bowl. Put the jewelry into the bowl and let sit for a few minutes, and then use a very soft, dedicated toothbrush to gently scrub the jewelry. Remove the necklace charm from soapy water, rinse it and dry thoroughly with a soft polishing cloth.
