Description

Red enamelled copper necklace in a triangle shape. The back of the necklace has been enamelled in red 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 necklace was given slightly longer in the kiln to give black dots.  The pendant is about 4.5cm 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 37cm, 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.  One photo shows the necklace being worn (at its longer length).  I’ve also included a photo of the tail.  Sorry these photos aren’t very good.

The back of this pendant has small marks in the enamel (bumps) from how it was supported in the kiln.
