I love aged metal... the patina, nicks and digs the pieces acquire over time. That was my inspiration behind this piece, create pieces that have a story to tell.
Each piece is cut out by hand from my original sketch from heavy gauge brass sheet. i employed several different texture methods to create the aged look. Several layers of patina are added and then selectively removed to highlight the different textures in the piece, lastly i came back in and "scuffed" off the patina in patches to reveal the shiny brass underneath to catch the light. A clear sealer is applied to protect the finish.
Each piece is a one of a kind as adding the texture is an organic process and is unique to each piece.
Pendant hangs from your choice of a 16",18", or 26" chain.
Pendant measures 1 1/2" long
picture shows a 16" length, look for other necklace in the collection that are great for layering together!
