Inspire Me Necklace *Pause*
This is really resonating with me! Are you on the go all the time? Even when I’m knitting in the evenings my mind is racing thinking of new designs, or whose birthday is coming up, or what I’m making for dinner next Saturday. I forget to just stop, pause, and live in the moment. Perhaps you know the feeling. Take a deep breath and just be still for 10 seconds. Doesn’t that feel good?
I have one of these hanging on my mirror, just to remind me to take a breath and a moment.
Is there some area of your life where you feel the need or desire to pause?
1” pure copper disc enameled on both sides with unleaded enamels. All exposed copper is sanded smooth and the pendant is suspended from an adjustable pure cotton cord with 2 copper beads to make the ends easier to adjust. The necklace can be worn as a choker and extends to about 30 inches.

Each Inspire Me Necklace is handmade in my Vermont studio. Want to know how?
I begin with a sheet of heavy gauge pure copper. The discs are made and formed, and the hole for the cord is cut out. Following a dip in an acid bath (for cleaning) and a thorough rinsing, each piece is enameled with several coats of enamel (finely ground glass powder) front and back. Between coats of enamel they are fired in my kiln at 1450°.
After 3 coats the lettering is applied and the piece is fired one more time. Each piece is then inspected, and any excess glass is ground off from the sides of the piece before the final sanding.
The adjustable cord is made, then the piece is assembled, photographed, and placed into inventory.
