Copper Pumpkin Necklace

These tiny copper pumpkin necklaces are inspired by my love of these delicious and spooky squashes! Pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween they are for the whole year round as far as I’m concerned. Did you know that the word ‘pumpkin’ comes from the Greek word “pepon” which means a “large melon, they originated in Central America, they are actually a fruit and a squash!

Each one is made from hand-fired copper clay and they come with a sterling silver 18-inch necklace. They measure roughly 10mm x 10mm but each one varies slightly in size and design as they are all handmade by me.



Historically, copper has been used to keep the body healthy and to enhance positive energy. It is also said to improve mental health, joint stiffness and pain, mineral absorption and a healthier immune system. It can also uplift a person spiritually.

Please note that sometimes the acidic nature of human sweat and other chemicals on the skin, such as soaps, lotions and makeup, can react with copper and cause a green patina or surface coating to form on the copper and transfer onto the skin. This occurs as a normal reaction to the prolonged copper exposure on the skin, typically caused by oxidation and is not dangerous. Any marks can be removed with soap and water and the jewellery can be restored with a quick polish. If you have any problems, please do let me know.

Most of my items are inspired by Victorian memento mori and Mexican sugar skulls and more information about this can be found in my About section. If you have any questions, please feel free to message me.

All items are sold with FREE 1st class postage.
