ONE OF A KIND
I created this bold and striking pendant with copper wire and copper sheet, then set it with a naturally formed crystal of honey calcite. The pendant measures almost 3.25 inches tall and .75 inches wide; the stone extends about .5 inches from the copper wire base. The copper chain measures 24 inches and is finished with a copper toggle clasp. The pendant is attached to the chain through a hidden tube bail in the back.
I gave the piece a light patina to mute the bright color of untreated copper and better compliment the stone. The patina is mostly warm honey brown, but it includes small areas of darker brown and steel gray. The colors of the copper vary dramatically depending on the light: bright direct light brings out the golden copper colors, while low or indirect light brings out the grays (see the gallery photos). I sealed the patina with jeweler’s microcrystalline wax to prevent color changes.
