Large Sterling “Our Darling” Coffin Plate Necklace

Mockingbird Lane Artistries

Regular price $148.00

 ABOUT: 

A large Our Darling coffin plate was created into a pendant using a process called electroform; depositing pure copper plating onto items using chemicals and electricity.  The piece was then plated with sterling silver over top of the copper. 

This coffin plate is a resin cast, replicated by the Museum of the Very Strange; from an original Victorian coffin plate from my personal collection  

This piece was created as a collaboration with my friend Lori of Lomo Studio Designs. I prepared the pieces up until the plating process, and she did the copper plating. We then sent this piece to a larger company, to plate over the copper with a thick layer of sterling silver, because silver plating chemicals are dangerous to use at home.   

This piece is hand polished, lacquered to slow down the tarnishing process, and suspended from a thick 18 inch  stainless steel chain. 

Your necklace will be beautifully packaged so it is ready to give as a gift or to keep as a treasured adornment for yourself.
