Patina 3-Layerd Pendant: Copper, Navy Yellow Splash and Purple
Aside from stones, enameling and the raw metal or alloy, color is rarely explored in metal jewelry form. Since expressive colors, texture and form are a part of my culture it only seemed natural to use these combinations into my latest jewelry creations. Dream in color.
This bold colorful pendant centerpiece has three different colorful abstract shapes held together with a two sterling rivets. Each shape was textured, hand sawed out, formed and sanded. Bottom layer is a shimmering copper tone, middle is a decoupage of navy blue and yellow brass while the top has a thin oval texture and purple surface. Colors are sealed with either a fine layer of wax or was to sprayed finish to ensure long lasting color; to protected this coloring please keep the pendant out of contact with water as well as soap/harsh chemicals.
Please note that the color looks slightly more intense in the photographs listed due to the light set up.
Pendant was placed centered on a heavy 18 inch oxidized double round sterling silver cable chain. Clasp is also oxidized sterling silver.
