Hand enameled 1 1/4” domed copper pendant-original one of a kind-on a long 30” chain of Czech, Italian & Japanese glass beads that closes with a lobster clasp and ring. From my “Bee Series,” this unique, original pendant includes a stunning metallic background (made using transparent glass over polished copper.) Glass flower designs create a “landscape” and a detailed, dark gold honey bee decal. Taken together, a completely original focal created by making a kind of glass collage on my metal form.
The long chain is fun to layer or to wear alone. Comes in my signature box, all ready to gift! A beautiful celebration of nature and her perfect details. Excellent to begin conversations about bees, pollinators, conservation and ecology.
Powdered glass, crumbs & pieces are manipulated on copper shapes layer by layer. The copper shape is put into a kiln multiple times, and fired to between 1400F and 1450F, between each layer. During each firing, the glass melts and bonds with the metal & glass below for a beautiful durable, permanent finish. I call this “painting with glass crumbs” and have worked to refine my personal style in enamels since 2015.
