Firepainted Lotus Flower

with Chalcedony Stone
This piece was created using a torch on copper sheet. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint creating glorious patterns and luminous hues.

Each one is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happen. No two will be the same.

The lotus flower is hand sawn with a jeweler's saw and the piece is finished with a handmade fine silver fused and hammered circle and firepainted copper clasp.

Please note: This particular piece has sold but I have another with a chalcedony stone and firepainted copper which is very similar in color. Due to the variations in color and patterning each is one-of-a-kind.

Materials: Heat treated copper. Color is protected with a top grade, permanent gloss lacquer, faceted genuine chalcedony stone, sterling silver chain darkened with a patina, fine silver handcrafted circle and "firepainted" copper closure.
