Petite Diamond Shape with Prehnite
Incredible color on this piece accented with a sweet faceted prehnite stone. The colors pop against the warm copper tones of the 3 strand copper colored cable. It is finished with a sterling silver bayonet tube clasp.
Prehnite: Known as the protective stone, it strengthens the life force and increases and stimulates energy, while at the same time bringing powerful calming energies. Thus, prehnite is said to ease worries and restlessness of all kinds.
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. Each one is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening. I hand cut my designs with a jeweler's saw, shears or die cut.
