I paired this little fire painting with a genuine faceted aquamarine. The "firepainted" convex copper circle is 3/4" in diameter with striking pastel color complemented by the faceted aquamarine Stone.
The flame painted color and the bright copper are both protected with a top grade, permanent gloss lacquer, therefore this piece is carefree! Only use water to clean. Please no jewelry cleaner or polishing cloth. The necklace is a 3-strand nylon coated steel cable with sterling silver bayonet clasp.
Aquamarine: Aquamarine is mainly used as a soothing stone, to relieve stress. Because of its connection with water it is used to cleanse the body and strengthen the immune system.
Please note: This particular piece has sold and is an example only. I have others in the works and available. 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 so yours will be unique!
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 the circle from a larger sheet of copper with a die cut.
