Gorgeous One Off Copper Flower Pendant JOY 01
I used a piercing saw to cut out the flower shape from heavy gauge copper sheet. Then I used my trusty cross pein hammer to give the flower texture and form.
Next step was to give it colour. I have used transparent glass powder because it shows off the hammered texture, almost like tiny folds that occur naturally in some flowers. The colour I used for this flower is called Persian Blue. In the middle there are little millefiore flowers in pastel blue and green
I love the shape and the 3D look of this flower. So tactile! Truly a Joyful piece! Definitely a personal favourite that I really really wanted to add to my own collection of jewellery. I guess I should make more of these…
