Planet Ahava - meaning Planet Love and named for the hand-forged sterling silver band encircling and hugging its rugged surface of bronze as even in our brokenness we are loved.
Completely hand sculpted, fired and finished by artist, Selah Gay. Bronze is a unique metal, a combination of copper and tin which, when combined, create a rich golden color and durable, hard organic surface. Making it a perfect metal for the organic nature of Selah's designs.
Due to the copper content, bronze does have a tendency to patina over time. Each piece has been waxed with 3 coats of Renaissance Wax to help preserve its present patina. However if it begins to turn in color, you may polish with the polishing cloth provided with your purchase and re-wax if you like.
The "Planet" is 1" x 1" with an 1/8" ring of hammered sterling silver encircling it.
Although it is hollow it has a nice weight of 1 oz. (without chain) It also has a small ball of bronze inside.
The bail is made of hammered bronze wire, also created by the artist.
This 30" necklace comes with a choice of a silver-tone base metal or bronze chain.
