"Itty Bitty" with Chalcedony Necklace
This sweet necklace pops with vibrant color and is accented with a bright and beautiful chalcedony stone. 5/8" diameter convex circle with bright copper hand sanded rim. The chalcedony drop measures approximately 3/8" in length. Finished with a sterling silver adjustable chain darkened with a patina.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: The necklace shown is no longer available and is an example only. Due to the wild nature of flame on copper each one is unique in patterning with rich, vibrant color.
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.
