Rugged Torch Fired Guitar picks make great custom gifts.
Each one turns out as one of a kind as I paint them with torch fire. This is not a liquid paint, but a rearranging of the molecules until the light hits the copper metal in a unique color combination. This process takes time and patience, but is well worth the results.
These pics are cut from raw, pure copper sheet metal that is between 20 and 22 guage thickness. Not too thin or too heavy. I then sand the edges by hand and tumble in an industrial strength tumbler for at least 12 hours with stainless steel shot. Next I torch fire the colorful one of a kind patina. Then, finally hand drill a hole for placement on vintage style keychain or leather cord.
I have sold many in just a regular vintaged patina with a cross or treble clef engraving. Clients also have initials or quotes placed on the back. Some customers request initials or a special message engraved or stamped. You can see other choices in my Etsy shop. I am able to engrave a cross, heart, treble clef or letters. For handstamping just check the length of your phrase with me to make sure I can fit it around or in the middle of the pick. Hand stamping can be done around an engraving in the middle if you request. All hand stamping and engraving is included in the cost.
Many customers leave the process up to me and tell me what initials or quote they would like along with a plain front or engraving. I have many happy customers who order for nephews, boyfriends, sons, husbands, even women who enjoy guitar or music. I thought it would be nice to get to choose a necklace or keychain.
Excellent gift choice for guys or gals. Guitar players do play with these at times, or they wear them as a special keepsake. Also a great idea for wedding party gifts. Great gift from bride to groom with stamping of "I pick you" or some couples have a his her set of keychain or pendants.
As always comes nicely packaged all ready for gift giving. The final 3 pictures are there to show you past customer orders and how they look as a keychain and pendant. Pendants come on a thick genuine leather cord that is finished with antiqued copper wire wrap. I hand forge adjustable loops and finish with a forged hook or large gunmetal lobster clasp to make closure simple. Keychains are done in antiqued metal.
What you need to request in note to seller when checking out:
1) Plain antique patina or rainbow colored patina
2) Choose plain front, engraved cross, heart or treble clef
3) If you want initials let me know if you want them on back or on front.
4) Choose a meaningful phrase or quote on front or back. Let me know if you would like it engraved or stamped. Stamping can only be done on one side, so you may have engraving on one and stamped on the other if you wish.
Thank you for shopping with a family owned business! Have a super day!
