new Firepainted Lotus Flower

with Amazonite and Pyrite
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 gorgeous rare shaped smooth amazonite stone in the center is bezel set in fine silver and riveted to the lotus flower shape that is hand sawn with a jeweler's saw. A dew drop faceted pyrite stone dangles from beneath. The chain is sterling silver that has been darkened with a patina and the piece is finished with a handmade fine silver fused and hammered circle and firepainted copper clasp.

This is a one-of-a-kind statement piece.

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