Description

Light blue enamelled copper necklace with orange stripes in an oval shape (with oval hole in it). The back of the necklace has been enamelled in light blue too, shown in one of the photos.  The back of the pendant needs enamelling to reduce how much the pendant warps in the kiln and to reduce the chance of the enamel cracking.  Vitreous enamel is effectively glass, but melting it onto copper in a kiln makes the materials bond so although if you drop it, it might crack, it isn’t as fragile as you might expect.  The pendant is about 4cm tall and comes in a black presentation box.

The necklace is attached to a black waxed cotton cord which has adjustable length.  At almost full length the necklace hangs down 36cm, based on measuring from the middle of the back of my neck to the top of the pendant.  At this length there is about a 10cm tail hanging down at the back.  Making the necklace shorter increases the tail hanging down at the back, though for shorter lengths the cord can always be cut a bit shorter to reduce how much hangs down.  At the end of the tail is a heart shape made from copper.  I’ve included a photo of the necklace being worn to show its longer length and a photo of the tail.

The back of the pendant has small bumps from how it was supported in the kiln.  On this pendant there are also two small marks on the front, visible in the photos, from when I was enamelling the back of the pendant.
