My love for flowers is the inspiration for this lovely mixed metal flower necklace. Each petal was hand cut and layered, tiny balls were formed for the center of the flower and the leaves were hand cut, all from white satin metal clay. Tiny details were carved into the petals and leaves, then 3 layers of copper metal clay were added to the edges of the petals and the center of the flower. After firing at a very high temperature in the kiln, the pendant was highly polished the a protective coating was added to preserve the color. Copper tends to alloy with iron during the firing process, so the edges appear more of a rose bronze color than copper. The pendant measures approximately 7/8" x 1" and hangs on an 18" satin gold plated rolo chain.
White satin metal clay is a combination of copper, iron and tin, which gives it the silver color and is very strong and lightweight. It is made from powdered metals 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 metal particles sinter (or fuse) into metal. Each piece is handcrafted and is one-of-a-kind.
