What is "Firepainted" copper? I use a torch on copper sheet in an 11 step hot and cold process to obtain vibrant colors. No chemicals or dyes are used. I then hand cut my shapes with a jeweler's saw, shears or die cuts and many times cold connect copper with other metals with handmade rivets. I pair many pieces with genuine gemstones and create my own settings with fine silver.

Most ear wires and chain are sterling silver darkened with a patina.

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.

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

Pendant measures approx. 2.75"W x 1.25"L. Chain measure 8" on either side of the piece.
