Handmade, copper enamelled necklace with fired enamel paint landscape. Front is enamelled in with an abstract watercolour style landscape. Back is enamelled in blue and multicolour speckles. Every enamelled piece is completely one of a kind! Small imperfections give the piece character and handcrafted charm.
This pendant is sawn out of copper sheet by hand. The piece is filed, drilled and sanded. I then sift a fine powdery glass substance called enamel onto the surface. It is fired at a very high temperature in a kiln. After several base layers of fired enamel, I begin to paint small watercolour style landscapes using enamel paints. Each layer of paint is fired, then more detail is applied. Layer by layer the enamel melts and fuses to the the copper. I use a small enamelling kiln which my Grandma used for copper enamelling in the 70s. Every enamelled piece is one of a kind!
Pendant hangs from a nickel free, copper plated, brass, round, cable chain. Features a small, copper plated, lobster claw style clasp. Exposed copper will patina with time.
