*This dendritic agate was sourced from lapidary artists in India who hand cut their stones with hand crafted tools. The sale of these stones directly supports their small community*
MINI magnifying glass (1" diameter) set in thick, hammered sterling silver. Handle crafted with a lovely, long dendritic agate -- semi-translucent off-white color, with dark dendrites and a warm copper shadow. Hand forged, one of a kind. Full pendant approximately 2" x 1".
These lenses are small, a bit larger than a quarter, but just big enough to make out a few words on a teeny tiny how-the-hell-am-I-supposed-to-read-that label and that’s really all that matters in life :)
STRUNG on 36"L solid brass rolo chain in Gunmetal, Natural or Antique finish (see last photo). Chain features a decorative sterling silver s-hook clasp so it can be easily shortened to your preferred length using wire cutters or heavy duty shears. *Chain is nickel & lead free.*
*STERLING SILVER CHAIN UPGRADES are available for purchase. See the "Magnifiers" section of my shop, or search the shop for UPGRADE.*
LENS = 3.5x standard reading power, optical grade plate glass. Strong, durable and scratch resistant. *3.5x is the highest power recommended for OPTIMAL READING. A higher powered lens will have a smaller viewing area; i.e., warped words around the edge of the lens. If you'd like a stronger lens for purposes other than reading, 5x-7x magnifiers can be custom ordered.*
Each magnifying glass necklace is hand fabricated, one at a time, therefore no two are identical. Prices will vary based on materials, and may rise/fall with the silver market.
Each piece is completely hand fabricated, therefore one of a kind. It's a delicate balancing act, ensuring my pieces have both fine craftsmanship yet loads of unique, artisan-made character. I’m mindful to ensure each piece falls in the “shop small” category from start to finish by using green materials when possible (reclaimed, up-cycled, ethically mined) and only purchasing fair trade, hand-cut stones directly from independent lapidary artisans. I love knowing more than one heart went into crafting each piece I make, and more than one family will benefit from their creation. I hope you like.
