Etched Enamel Necklace, Riveted on Copper, Red Orb Pendant, 30% Off
Both layers of this pendant are hand-cut from copper sheet. The top layer is etched with a modern intersecting lines pattern, and then oxidized to highlight the pattern. The top layer is then riveted atop tiny tubes over a hand-enameled on copper base plate in rich deep red. The stacked and riveted layers create a 3-D effect. I've applied lacquer to the etched surface in order to protect the oxidization. Each piece in the etched copper enamel series is completely handmade.
The copper shapes are carefully cleaned and prepared in order to accept the enamel. Then, I apply multiple layers of enamel, which is finely powdered glass. The layers of enamel are fused to the copper on both sides in a 1500 degree kiln. This firing process is repeated several times. Finally, the edges are sanded to expose the copper. And voila .... a vibrantly colored enamel pendant which will make a great gift for yourself or a loved one.
Pendant measures 1.5" wide, 1" high, and 3mm deep. Antique copper cable chain and lobster clasp. Total length is 26". Chain can be adjusted upon purchase. Was $82, now $56 (additional 10% off).
