About our materials
Our items are made of soft metals which will scratch and acquire a worn patina over time. Copper, brass, and bronze will darken in color as they age (like a penny), and text darkening can fade.
All pieces are hand-stamped and there may be subtle variations in depth and placement of the letters. The variations and aging process are features of the crafting method and the nature of the metals.
I purchased two of these necklaces one for me and one for a dear friend from college. They are beautiful!
What a lovely necklace! Well made and so so pretty!
What a lovely piece of Resistance Jewelry! The necklace is pleasing to the eye. The little owl adds a nice accent. 'Bread and Roses' is a workers' song, and I love having it inscribed on the front of this necklace. A nod to the class song of Bryn Mawr College, my Alma Mater.
Lovely pendant and necklace. Having just returned from my 35th Bryn Mawr College reunion, I was searching Etsy for a lantern necklace and instead I was thrilled to find this necklace with our 1984 class song, Bread and Roses, and the Bryn Mawr owl. Thank you, Alison!
The necklace is much more elegant looking than it sounds! The owl charm gives a wonderful balance sense of design. It wears extra prettily because of the free movement of the Bread & Roses piece and the owl. Its a lovely piece for a practical price.
