OOAK one of a kind foldformed and metalworked copper pendant featuring a genuine fresh water pearl, with flame patina. A simple and different gift for her.

This pendant started with a plain copper disk. I folded it, hammered and worked it to create the desired shape and texture. This process also involves repeated annealing and cooling of the copper metal. I then polished it and applied a patina with the use of a torch. Controlled firing produces surprising range of colors in the copper and transforms it into almost a jewel like finish. The patina seems to radiate from the center of the pendant and has blues, greens, pinks and purples, very reminiscent of peacock feathers (please see the second photo).

At the heart of the pendant hangs a large round genuine fresh water pearl but there is a little secret hidden behind it: A round area of no patina with the pure warm pinkish glow of copper (photo 3).

To finish the pendant I applied 2 layers of renaissance wax (jeweler's wax) and then polished it to a satiny sheen. The wax will protect the pendant from dirt and your natural skin oils.

The cord is not included in this listing. The split ring attached to the pendant is large enough to accommodate any number of chains and cords so you have the freedom of customizing the length to place your pendant where it looks best depending on what you are wearing! The pendant itself is about 33 mm across.
