This sweet little turquoise glass bottle has been decorated with a handmade pewter embellishment featuring a blue-green paua shell cabochon. It has been finished with a stopper assembled from glass beads. Perfect for use as a one-stem vase or as a decorative item, it is 13cm high and 4cm in diameter. A great gift for a 10th Wedding Anniversary, Mothers' Day, Valentine's Day, Birthday, Easter or Christmas.
Each pewter piece has been individually made by hand (not cast) to my own design. A pattern is raised on a sheet of pewter, then the raised area is filled. The item is then mounted on a rigid base,chemically patinated, then polished.Modern pewter is lead-free and after patination has a shiny,almost reflective,finish.It does not blacken like silver and can be brightened, if necessary,with a smear of metal polish and a buffing with a soft cloth.
