Beautiful tiger iron heart in copper.
The wire is solid copper that has been oxidized and polished for an antique look. The matching chain necklace is included and measures 18". If you would like a different length please contact me.
The last photo shows the pendant next to a ruler for size comparison.
Tiger Iron is thought to be the most energetically dynamic of all the grounding stones. It is believed to be useful for self healing and encourages health, personal power, focused will and mental clarity. Furthermore, it is thought to lend strength, stamina and energy to the physical body.
Wire wrapping is a genre of jewelry which requires pliable wire to be shaped into each piece. As a piece progresses, the wire hardens and sometimes it is hammered to further strengthen a piece. It will retain it's shape, however if you try to bend it or it gets squished, it will bend. Do not place your wire wrapped jewelry in a purse or pocket.
I do my best to take accurate and attractive photos that are true to color, using natural light. Colors will vary slightly from one screen to another.
Stone Surfaces are delicate, take care while wearing.
Copper will tarnish over time. To remove any tarnish you can either use a jewelry polishing pad or steel wool from any hardware store. Just rub the whole surface of the piece to get the shine back. Diluted lemon juice will also brighten the piece. Store the jewelry in plastic bag when not using. Wash the jewelry with a drop of dish soap to achieve instant brightness.
