Lichen Enamel Necklace
This piece reminds me of the lichen growing on rocks and trees on my woodland walks.
The wide teardrops are made from pure copper sheet and measure about 1.3 inches (33mm) in length. Several coats of enamel (powdered glass) are applied and fired after each application in a kiln at 1500° in order to get this effect. After grinding, sanding and polishing they are ready for the 18" copper oxidized chain and lobster clasp
Since it is difficult to predict precisely what will happen in the kiln, each pair…in fact each earring is unique so cannot be reproduced exactly.
As with all my jewelry, it will arrive gift boxed appropriate for giving, complete with a gift tag (blank on the back) for you to write your personal message on. I am also happy to handwrite a note and send directly to your recipient.
