Who else is a fan of miniature things? This is a little miniature necklace!
The Dottie necklace was created to be a dainty, miniature, little itty bitty necklace. It measures about 1/4 inch wide in diameter. Please see the listing photos for a size reference next to a dime. This little disc is cut by hand out of sheets of thick 14k gold fill or sterling silver, perfect for every day wear and hangs on a sparkly chain.
In an effort to be sustainable and responsible with the Earth's precious metals and resources, we cut these little discs out of sheets left over from cutting our other necklaces such as hearts and larger discs. By purchasing a Dottie Necklace, you are contributing to the responsible and sustainable use of the Earth's precious metals and energy used to mine and mill these sheets!
LENGTH: Measurement of length is when the necklace is open and measured from end to end. Standard length is 18 inches. Length will vary from person to person. Please see the size guidefor length suggestions!
All our pieces are lovingly gift boxed in a foiled Mint box, ready to be gifted to yourself or a loved one!
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MINT & BIRCH PIECES?
T H E M A G I C I S I N T H E P R O C E S S .
Each Mint & Birch piece starts out as sheets of precious metal. Each bar, disc, oval, heart is cut and polished by hand in my studio. Each piece is cut lovingly by me one order at a time. Jessica, the owner of the company.
Yes! You can wear these pieces every day without worry of flaking, peeling or tarnish!
I personally file, drill and polish each one with my own hands. I only use ethically sourced gold fill and solid sterling silver sheets sourced from North American mills. Using hand tools allows me to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! I do not use a tumbler, in which several pieces are put into a rotating canister with abrasives or steel pins to quickly smooth batches of pieces, causing micro scratches and unnecessary wear. Instead, I believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow grease! Your bar necklace will not flake and you can wear it daily! The combination of high quality materials and my unique process of finishing the bars results in pieces that will last for years to come. I strive to offer my best, offering customizations not found elsewhere, such as the original hand lettered pieces.
