This little fox necklace is cast from an original Victorian charm, which I reworked. I’d spent ages trying to sculpt a tiny fox in wax, but each time I got the nose just right, i discovered I’d squashed the tail in the process... very frustrating!
I always love to visit the antique jewellery dealers on the Portobello road, and one of them had a tiny fox charm from about 1860. I bought it, cast it to make a wax version and then adapted his posture and added some texture. So, he’s a combination of my work and a long lost jeweller’s, which I’m really happy about.
He's available in Sterling silver, on a sterling silver chain.
16" chain with an extender to 18" The fox is 1 cm long, nose to tail
Care & Maintenance
Your jewellery is precious, and needs to be looked after carefully. Jewellery should be kept clean, dry and away from chemicals that could harm it, or items that could scratch it, such as other jewellery. For example: Don’t leave it in a heap in the bathroom! Moisturiser, soap, makeup, perfume and hairspray etc all contain chemicals which can make jewellery oxidise and/or just make it dirty. Chlorine may cause your silver or gold filled pieces to oxidise, so avoid wearing it in the pool. Please clean your jewellery with a special cleaning/polishing cloth before putting it away, or with warm water and dish soap to remove build up of skin care products which can dull or darken it. A soft toothbrush can be used to gently clean off any deposits. (be careful not to scratch it..) Or a specialist jewellery cleaning solution can be used, but do make sure that it’s suitable for any stones or pearls in your piece. Silver pieces will naturally oxidise over time, and just need a bit of silver polish and maybe a wash to bring back their sparkle. Clothing notes: scarves, jackets and jumpers can be an enemy to necklaces and earrings! Please be very careful not to yank or unhook your jewellery by mistake when changing clothes.
