Firepainted copper riveted to bronze with a sterling silver rivet and sterling silver shepherd's hook ear wires darkened with a patina. Shown with Firepainted Arrowhead and Bronze Necklace.
These little "firepaintings" are paired by similarity in color and pattern but no two will ever be exactly alike. They measure 1.75" in length from top of the ear wire to bottom point.
What is "Painting with Fire"?
I use a torch on copper sheet in an 11 step hot and cold process to obtain vibrant colors. No chemicals or dyes are used. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint, creating the glorious patterns and luminous hues on each hand cut shape. Due to the wild nature of flame on copper each is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening and no two will ever be duplicated. I then hand cut these designs with jeweler's shears.
Each piece is hand brushed individually with a top grade permanent lacquer and the ear wires and wire are darkened with a patina so there is no care involved. Please only clean with water.
