This necklace features a detailed angel wing pendant, hand-patinated and distressed for an aged look, an antiqued-brass coloured key charm, and a small, antique glass bead made to resemble moonstone.

The wing pendant is copper based, and has been hand patinated by another artisan using a special mix of chemicals. I decided that I wanted a more distressed, vintage look, so I scrubbed off some of the patina using super-fine steel wool, revealing coppery highlights underneath the turquoise patina. Then I sealed the wing with clear varnish to preserve the new finish.
The ornate key charm is made of pewter, with an antiqued-brass coloured finish.
The glass bead is antique (at least one hundred years old), and has a milky, opal-like translucence that really does look like moonstone.
The chain is antiqued-brass in colour, with round links, and the necklace fastens with an antiqued-brass coloured lobster-claw clasp.

'Angyalka' is the Hungarian version of the name 'Angelica', which of course means 'angelic'.

The necklace measures 50cm, including the lobster-claw clasp and the ring, while the angel wing pendant measures 50mm lengthwise, including the baile (the little hanging loop at its top), and 17mm across at the widest point. The key charm is 36mm long, including its baile, while the little imitation moonstone bead is 6mm across.
