Copper Beech Leaf Collection of pendants is inspired by beautiful nature and autumnal motifs featured in Point Ground laces. It is one of my favourite designs, to make and to wear, all year around, and especially in the fall.

The traditional handmade bobbin lace technique was adapted to fit wire medium to create unique wearable lace art. Ground of regularly spaced holes accommodates thick gimp outlines, and together they create a contrast between light open weave and dense filled areas, between air and matter, between transparency and reflection.

The Copper Beech Leaf Pendants represent the essence of lace design: a simple pattern can be worked in many variations by changing materials and colours. As a result, each pendant is same but different. This creative process is very interesting and rewarding for the designer, and the joy of creative process manifests in the finished pieces. The pendants carry sense of wonder, and bring delight to discerning viewers and wearable art lovers.

This listing is for one Copper Beech Pendant. Choose from three design variations* :

Design A - raw copper wire with subtle colour variegation in tones of copper, yellow, green

Design B - raw copper wire with deep colours of full fire scale range - copper, orange, yellow, blue, purple

Design C - enamelled copper wire - original colour of pure copper coated with protective clear enamel layer

NOTES about RAW COPPER jewellery, PLEASE READ:

1/ Colour variegation of the raw copper wire leaves was achieved by patination through heat process. Because they are not stabilized by any coating, the colours will slowly change over time. In that sense, the Copper Beech Leaves are truly organic, living and changing leaves. To preserve this colour stage for longer, the pendants should be stored in sealed bags (included).

2/ ALERGY ALERT:
While raw copper is being considered a pure metal with healing properties, it is known that it doesn't agree with everybody's chemistry. To prevent any skin reactions, I recommend wearing the raw copper pendants on clothes, and not directly on skin. It is easy to say and do in Canada, where we wear jewellery on clothes most of the time, but if you live in a hot climate, and have experienced reaction to copper before, or are not sure how your skin will react, select the ENAMELLED copper (Design C). Clear enamel coating creates a barrier, that prevents chemical interaction between the wire and the wearer.

DETAILS:
Size: height 9.5 cm, width - 5 cm
Actual size photographed on a medium size (8) dress form
These pendants are very light for their size and therefore are easy to wear

Each pendant comes with adjustable cotton, polyester or silk necklace. The necklace can be adjusted by sliding knots/beads to lengths between 40 and 80cm (16-32 inch) See the photos. This cord necklace can be removed and replaced with chain or any other necklace.

This is the third necklace I have purchased from Lenka; I have waited and watched for this Chantilly Lace Necklace; well worth the waiting and certainly well worth the investment! Would buy from this seller again and again.
