This necklace is made with a 1 1/8 inch nickel silver metal disc. I handstamped, "THE PURPOSE OF LIFE, IS A LIFE OF PURPOSE" around the outside of the disc, oxidized, hammered the edges and polished to a bright finish. On the copper disc in the center, I handstamped, "PURPOSE". It is riveted to the silver disc with brass rivets. It is attached to an 18 inch steel curb chain. Great inspirational piece.
