Description

Blue Single Rose, a hand embossed repoussé metal pendant necklace, created from sheet pewter.

A single curving rose design, embossed in pewter, surrounded by a rich blue paint, stained with patinas and sealed with resin into a simple black round bezel setting.

The metal pendant setting and chain are both lead and nickel free. The chain fastens with a lobster clasp.

Approximate sizes:
Outer including bail: 41mm x 32mm / 1.6” x 1.25”
Inner area: 30mm x 30mm / 1.2” x 1.2”

Chain total length: 61cm / 24”
If you would like the chain length altered before shipping, please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate you.

All pieces ship ready to wear (unless otherwise noted). I try to take photos of my pieces from several different angles to show the way the light interacts with the metal surface and paint, and the three-dimensional embossed shapes and textures (any props/easels in the photographs are for display only and are not included in the listing).

This item will be shipped to you regular airmail, which takes approx 3-4 working days to Australian locations and 7-10 working days to International locations. Please let me know if you would like the item shipped express, with tracking or with insurance.
I do ship worldwide wherever possible though I have not included shipping costs for all countries – if a shipping cost for your country is not listed, please contact me and I will give you a quote.

A CURIOUS ELIXIR : AN ALCHEMICAL TRANSFORMATION OF PEWTER INTO UNIQUE ARTWORKS

Using a metal tooling technique known as repoussé, I emboss each piece by hand in my Melbourne studio. After pressing the design into the pewter sheet, the surface is etched, bumped, scratched, marked, doused with a dark patinating solution and then polished back to give it a tarnished, aged look, leaving the metal surface stained with tones of blacks, browns, blues, golds and silvers - this process is wonderfully unpredictable, so every piece is completely unique. The piece is then finished with gems, glass paint, enamels, iridescent pigments and sometimes patterned origami papers or vintage engraving imagery. Each pendant is sealed into the backing with a layer of crystal clear resin.

I may sometimes reuse patterns though I never use a stamp or machine embosser to create my artworks – every piece of metal art in this shop is handmade and one of a kind.

Additional policies

Custom orders: I am happy to create a custom order by adapting an existing design or creating something new for you. Please note that custom orders can take 2-4 weeks to complete (not including shipping times), depending on the complexity of the design and availability of materials.

Wall art aftercare: My pieces have been sealed to protect the surface, though as with all artworks, they should be handled with care. The surface may become scratched or otherwise damaged should the work be roughly handled or dropped, therefore they are not meant as children's toys, and should not be placed outdoors. Over time, dust may settle on the surface, so to clean the piece you can wipe over it gently with a soft cloth, ideally a metal or camera lens polishing cloth or even a soft old t-shirt (nothing scratchy). Please do not use any cleaning or metal polishing solutions on the surface as you may damage the finish.
