Solid Copper Torque, Neck Ring or Collar
This collar is made from either #8 or #10 copper wire that has been purchased from a recycling company and then hand-forged by me. The collar can be worn with or without a pendant. It's simplistic shape and sturdy hammered finish lends itself to an understated beauty.
These neck pieces or torques, sometimes called torcs were often a sign of nobility or high social status. Many were made with the opening in the front or on the side. This one was created to open in the back.
Often made of gold, the Romans adopted the torc as a decoration for distinguished soldiers and elite units during Republican times.
This torque or collar was made from a single 24 inch piece of copper. Copper collars are easy to put on, and will fit all neck sizes. It can be easily adjusted to fit any neck size.
Please allow for slight variations and give us 5 to 7 days to create your torque collar. Also we should have some pendants listed on line in a couple of days if you choose to wear some on your collar.
Your copper collar will need cleaning from time to time and I will have information on my blog with the basic information on how to clean your copper jewelry. Later on I will have more information on care of your jewelry including how to change the color of your jewelry without using anything other than common household chemicals. Here is the address of the blog. The info on cleaning will be there in a few hours. http://itsascentsibleworld.blogspot.com/

The shampoo bar looks great, and I really appreciate the additional information & goodies for other herbal haircare techniques!
Thanks so much, Barbara! Will be back again!
I've done a whole lot of research on skin care & products, from a more science based, skeptical point of view and I want to just say that this seller makes the soaps & products I would make - I mean exactly what I would choose to make - down to each oil and ingredient she chooses. This is the find of a lifetime. I gifted my family & loved ones each with a half bar of shampoo (I ordered the herbs and made the vinegar infusion myself), and one salt based soap and one mud based soap suited to their unique skin types. And just as expected, raves all around. Absolutely thumbs up from 6 very picky people with a diverse array of needs of their skin and hair that nothing before seemed to suit as perfectly as their gifts from Pigeon Creek. I can only hope you continue this business (and allow us to buy from you) for a very long time. Just an aside, everyone adores the smell of your unscented bars containing kelp - we love the sea and it's only present for the time your washing yourself, afterwards you smell nothing but clean. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
OMG! This is such fantastic handmade soap! Really well made, beautiful scents and colors. Super fast shipping, great packaging and great communication - Top Notch! I am THRILLED! Highly recommended seller :)
