This design has appeared in various renditions in some of my earliest enamel collections, and is a very dear one to me. After the success of my first edition, I wanted to make a second 'costume jewelry' version of a design so many people have connected with, so more people could get to wear and enjoy a BattleAxe. This little Art Nouveau spacecraft can nestle between your shoulder bones, bringing smiles to people’s faces.
Un;Ike my handmade cloisonne, this piece was only designed by me then made for me by machines. Though the industry calls it 'enamel' and the finished look indeed mimics that of cloisonne, this is actually gold plated zinc alloy with high quality coloured resin, finished and ground down much like real cloisonne - but by a machine, hence me calling it Fauxnamel. The metal parts catch the lights beautifully so the ‘Hello Earth’ message glints into and out of view. The little fella’s face has been screen printed, and is such a true rendition of my design I squeaked when I saw it. The dome of the spaceship is also translucent resin and window-like, making for a very cute and unusual effect not usually seen in fauxenamel and innovated by the factory I worked with.
I mounted each spacecraft with three ‘ufo beam’ beads - very pretty Czech glass. There is an iridescent purple version, a peridot-green version and an aqua-blue version. The blue-gem version comes on a slightly longer chain.
It also comes on cute gold-plated brass necklace, with a dainty ball-and-chain design.
The piece is branded and dated 2021 at the back, for collectibility.

Care: While this is the highest quality Fauxnamel you can get, it is still a kind of plating and will get scuffed/scratched with over time. Avoid getting it wet, wearing it to sleep and getting chemicals (sunscreen/moisturiser included) on it so the plating will last. The necklace chain will lose its plating or break with time, but can be very easily replaced with a new one, a pair of pliers and some DIY know-how. As costume jewelry goes, treat it well, occasionally repair, and it’ll last you ages.
