Until You Come Home Bow Necklace
The perfect deployment gift for a military spouse, mom, sister and more. Made to wear till your loved one comes home from deployment.
This is part of my Until You Come Home Collection where piece have the wording until you come home along with a yellow ribbon. Inspired by the tying a yellow ribbon round an old oak tree to let your loved one know you are waiting for them.
Each necklace comes with a raw brass bow, which I hand form myself. All this hangs from a stainless steel chain. Know that each bow will vary slightly giving you your own unique necklace.
Here is a list of materials:
- chain: is stainless steel (not plated and tarnish resistant)
- jump rings: are stainless steel and not soldered, but are a thicker gauge so your piece will hold together under normal wear (they are used to hold pendants, charms or beads to chain)
18” is considered the average size and 24” is considered to be longer. However, note that where a necklace sits will depend on the size of individuals neck and where they prefer it to sit.
Hand stamping is the process where I use forged metal stamps, which contain letters, numbers, punctuation or designs, a hammer and steel block. I individually strike each letter, number, punctuation or design into the metal to leave an impression. I do not use a machine, nor a press. Many confuse engraving to be the same as hand-stamping, however, it is a very different process. Engraving is machine done in which metal is taken away and usually has no character charm. With hand stamping spacing and impression depth is not exact, which is a charm to the process of hand stamping pieces. It is not to be seen as a flaw, but rather a perfectly imperfect custom hand made unique piece for you to treasure. This has become a form many love and appreciate.
