Handmade Circle of Life Copper Pendant Lrg. version
Size 1 7/8″ diam.
This is a handmade Circle of Life Copper Pendant. It amazes me with each new design that I do what can be created from a sheet of copper and some basic tools. The story starts with it’s journey from sheet to become this Copper Pendant. This is a keepsake to be handed down. The story may 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.
This Copper Pendant starts with about 2 1/2″ sheet of Copper.
The design has been worked out in a computer.
Printed out on a label put on a sheet of copper and then chemically etched for about an hour.
Checking for the amount of depth I want in the design.
Once satisfied the copper jewelry is then put in a neutralizing bath to stop any further acid eating into the metal
The circle is then cut out to the finish size 1 7/8″
Hole is drilled for the Jump ring
Polished up then domed to give it a dimensional shape
Antiqued this gives the black to make the design stand out
Lacquered twice Now it is ready for sale
Why buy from me?
Finishing this Copper Pendant is just as important as creating he 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 this it what sets my work apart from others there is 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 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!
I want you to receive compliments every time you wear this Copper Pendant
The brightness of my copper may not come across as clear in the photos as they are in your hand. I have spent much time perfecting my own technique for the finishing. I then seal it with a special lacquer coating used for outdoor sculpture work. If at any time the lacquer fails just simply contact me and send it back I will recoat for free.
Comes with a rubber cord.
