This is a listing for one Custom Made Wire Wrapped Pet Rat Pendant Necklace.
I wire wrap the rat by shaping a 1mm piece of silver plated wire into the shape of a rat and then wire wrapping the animal with thin 0.4mm coloured copper wire, weaving the beads in place.
The beads are a glass crystal heart, a black onyx eye (or red agate), a glass crystal cheek and a pink glass seed bead nose.
I coat the pendants in a clear paint to protect the plating/coloured coating from tarnishing.
The necklace is a silver plated snake chain. The jump ring is stainless steel to make sure the pendant is nice and secure.
The Pendant is roughly 3cm by 3cm. The chain is 46cm (18 inches)
Each pendant is made to order. It takes me about 2 weeks to make one of these necklace before I ship them out.
The wire comes in these different colours:
3 dark blue
6 rose gold
7 copper (non tarnish)
9 champagne gold
The glass crystal hearts come in
A baby blue
B navy blue
G purple/gold metallic

Hello I am mummy and carer to twins Michael and Amber. They are now 9 years old. They were born 14 weeks premature (Michael 13 weeks and a day). Michael has Cerebral Palsy, which is damage to the brain that he probably suffered before he was born as I had an infection. He has very limited motor skills. He cannot walk, sit by himself and has trouble directing his arms to pick things up. He has to be cared for by an adult at all times as he can do very little for himself. Amber his twin is a different story she is Autistic. She has very few words and is very sensitive to sound. She has to do everything on her terms and can sometimes put herself in danger. She is very behind other children her age. She is very clumsy and sometimes freezes or just falls without warning. Both the twins have started special needs assessment nurseries this term for 2 days a week.
When the twins were in there first year, before I even knew the twins had their disabilities, I started making jewellery. I needed something to distract me after going through 4 months of NICU with the twins. I found it to be amazing therapy. I started with bead weaving then started doing wire-work. My work is inspired by nature and animals and gemstones as these are the things i have always enjoyed. I have an etsy shop and it does ok but I really feel I need the community side to crafting. It can be very lonely when you are a carer, being tired all the time and getting out is not so easy with a child in a wheel chair and an autistic child who will just wonder off given the chance. I could dream of taking them to a craft fair with me as they are at the moment. Amber does enjoy stringing her wooden beads like her mummy though!
Thank you for reading my story x
