Handmade Copper Pendant
“My Heart” Forged & High Polish
This is a handmade “My Heart” Copper Pendant. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a simple piece of wire and some basic tools.
The artist breathes life into a boring wire. It starts it’s incredible journey from wire to become this Copper Pendant. This is a keepsake to be handed down.
The story starts with the artist but continues on its own unique journey with you the customer. It is a very cool feeling to be part of that. Each piece is unique to itself the 1st time or the fifth time you make it. That is the beauty of handmade.
I am not sure who to give credit for this design it is something I saw somewhere and do not remember where I saw it. All work though was done by me.
It starts with 10″ of 12 Gage Copper wire that I anneal to make the shaping easier.It starts with drawing out the basic design of the heart to use as a guide.I start with the big curl and continue with the design. I then solder the Heart to make it more stable. I then clean the fire scale off the pendant and put it on my anvil and forge the wire to give it some character. It is now ready for the finishing process.
Why buy from me?
Finishing this Copper Pendant is just as important as creating the piece. This is where some artist get in a hurry. They have spent all their time creating and now they want to start on the next project. I have learn that this is what sets my work apart from others. There are no shortcuts. I do not get in a hurry at the end. I want to make sure the buyer has a smooth snag free keepsake jewelry. I use a buffing machine and I go through a 6 step of using different finishing brushes. Once I am satisfied with the finish I then let it tumble for 12 hours to help work hard and burnish the shine further.
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
The uniqueness of this Copper Pendant insures that you will receive compliments every time you wear it.
As with all my copper jewelry this item has been lacquer twice to help prevent tarnish.
Comes with a rubber cord.
