Bar Necklace with Chalcedony
This asymmetrical bar necklace pops with vibrant color and is accented with a bright and beautiful chalcedony stone. A simple geometric statement.
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.
Please note: The necklace shown has sold but I have more gorgeous chalcedony stones and more of this same design necklace in the works. Due to the wild nature of flame on copper no two pieces will ever be the same.
Each piece is hand brushed individually with a top grade permanent lacquer and since the chain has been darkened with a patina there is no care involved. Please only clean with water.
Chalcedony: A stone with a gentle energy. Soothes hostility and irritation and fosters mental and emotional stability. Engenders emotional honesty. It also encourages and eases communication, particularly what would otherwise be emotionally charged communication.
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.
