Pendant inspired by nature and carefully rendered in glass powders on copper shapes through multiple firings in a kiln at 1400-1450 F. Landscape imagery in lovely shades of yellows and browns evoke grasses and prairies. One of a kind art pendant centered on a beaded necklace of faceted brown pearls and faceted olive jade to further echo the colors in the focal point. Finished with oxidized sterling beads and a length of sterling chain to close between 17" (44 cm) and 19" (48 cm) with a sterling spring clasp and extension chain.
A copper oval has been dapped to create a subtle concave shape and then bits and powders of glass are added to develop the original abstract, painterly design. The back is also enameled, termed "counter enameling,” with a warm solid brown glass.
Vitreous enameling is an ancient technique of applying permanent, durable color to metals using heat to fuse the melted glass to the metal base. The enameled pieces that I create for my art jewelry won't fade, bleed, run or otherwise change.
Pendant hangs from an oxidized silver wire that incorporate a faceted olive jade bead. It hangs about 1 3/4" (44 mm) and is centered between over 8 3/8" of 6 mm freshwater pearls that are faceted. Smaller 4 mm faceted transluscent olive jade are used at the center and the ends of the pearls. A beautiful textured sterling silver cable chain closes with a sterling clasp. A faceted olive jade gem dangles from the end of this chain.
