The colors truly pop against the bright bronze. The “Firepainted” copper and bronze are riveted together with a sterling silver rivet which are both hand brushed with a top grade permanent lacquer to protect and preserve the colors therefore please only clean with water. No jewelry cleaner or polishing cloths. Pendant measures 2.25"L x 1.5"w.
The sterling silver chain is adjustable and darkened with a patina. To adjust, simply slide the center ball to the end at it's longest length of 28" and slip over your head, then you can adjust to a shorter length from there if desired. Shown with Firepainted Arrowhead Earrings.
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 my designs with a jeweler's saw, shears or die cut.
