The color and contrast with the black swirling is so vibrant and the faceted labradorite stone picks up the stunning blue-greens in it's flash. The "firepainted" copper is riveted to the bronze triangle with a handmade sterling silver rivet. The pendant with labradorite stone measures 2.5"L x 1.75"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.
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 then hand cut my designs with a jeweler's saw, shears or die cut.
The "Firepainted" copper and bronze have been hand brushed with a permanent lacquer to preserve and protect the color, therefore no jewelry cleaner is needed. Use only water to clean.
