Summer Solstice Sunset Necklace, Made for 2020 summer shows :(
This one of a kind necklace was designed for our 2020 show schedule that never took place. The lemon quartz drop is a ray of sunshine for any season.
Firepainted copper riveted to bronze with hand made sterling silver rivet and exquisite twisted faceted lemon quartz. Shown with "Firepainted Summer Solstice Sunshine Earrings".
This focal piece hangs from a 3 strand copper colored cable finished with a sterling silver bayonet tube clasp. Sleek and simple.
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 pieces with a jeweler’s shears.
Each piece is hand brushed individually with a top grade permanent lacquer so please only clean with water.
