Circle pendant with sculpted wild rose

£95.00

Product Code: 28978f

Stock Level: 1

Entirely hand crafted antiqued copper pendant on chain, featuring a textured asymmetric circle, adorned with a hand sculpted wild rose open bloom and several leaves.  The circle pendant hangs from the chain on a collection of 3 oval shaped jump rings.

I created my own cutter for the rose petals and individually cut and formed them into natural curves, bringing them together into a natural looking open bloom, complete with a central section of stylised anthers - each of which was hand rolled as a tiny ball and individually applied with tweezers. 

The rose has been hand sculpted by me in copper clay and represents many hours of detailed work under a magnifier with tweezers.   After kiln firing, the piece is polished and antiqued to bring out the warm tones of the copper and enhance the texture and details.    I also blogged about the making of this piece and the process.

Size:

The pendant drops 38mm (1½") overall from the solid copper belcher (rollo) chain and the circle of it is around 31mm (1.2") in diameter.  The chain fastens with my own hand crafted hook and loop clasp and will be made to order for you, up to a length of 762mm (30"), so please specify your requirements during checkout.  If no chain length is specified, it will be supplied at a default length of  457mm / 18".

What is copper clay:

Copper clay is a clay like medium made from tiny particles of copper, combined with an organic binder and made into a pliable clay or paste with water. After working with the clay-like medium to form the article, or components to assemble the finished piece as in this case, it is thoroughly dried to remove all of the water, the shape is assembled and gradually further refined and then fired at very high temperature in a kiln for several hours to both burn off the binders and to cause the copper particles to fuse together as solid metal.

Please note that this pendant has been remade, so more than one pendant is shown in the photographs.  The one currently for sale is the one shown in the main photograph above and is of the sizes given.
