This lovely necklace was handmade using bronze metal clay. I first carved the design to make a mold, then pressed the bronze metal clay into the mold for an embossed design. After firing in the kiln, I applied a colorful heat patina and sealed the pendant with 3 coats of protective sealant. The pendant measures approx. 1" and it hangs on an 18" double-strand dark green leather cord necklace that closes with a bronze hook and eye clasp.
Bronze Metal Clay is made from powdered precious metal combined with an organic binder and water. It can be modeled, molded, or sculpted then when heated to a high temperature, the binder burns away, and the precious metal particles sinter (or fuse) into solid bronze. Each piece is handcrafted and is one-of-a-kind.
