The bronze half moon glows against the “Firepainted” copper and the faceted labradorite with its blue green flash is a perfect complement. Pendant measures 2"L x 1.5"w.
I pair my little fire paintings with genuine gemstones and create my own settings with fine silver. The chain is sterling silver which has been darkened with a patina and is adjustable. Simply slide the center ball to the end at it's longest length of 28" with the end pieces even, slip over your head and shorten by sliding the ball down.
Labradorite: Smokey gray drop with flashes of color - The stone of transformation and protection. Helps to provide clarity and insight into your destiny, as well as attract success. Reduces stress and anxiety.
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 cuts and many times cold connect copper with other metals with handmade rivets as I did for this piece.
