For those who love the ocean and want to carry a piece of that energy with them. This pendant is my artistic rendering of a cresting ocean wave. It has a graphic and bold feel. It can be personalized on the back with a name or message. In this piece, I sift a base coat of transparent enamel onto the copper and fire in my kiln. I then sift transparent green enamels over that layer and fire. The back of the wave has a light blue enamel with black writing for the personalization.
The wave is 1.25 inches in diameter. I include a sturdy waxed cotton black cord that is adjustable from 16" to 18". The cord has stainless steel components. I only use supplies that are as eco-friendly as possible.
The pendants are cut out of pure copper sheet metal. I then enamel each piece by a technique called "sifting". Enamel is a finely powdered glass that fuses into metal when fired with a torch or kiln at approximately 1500 degree for several minutes. Different colors and effects can be created based on the type of enamel used and various techniques. Each piece is enameled on both sides to ensure strength. I use a plain dark "counter enamel" on the back. Each piece has my brand initials, "SHJ" engraved into the back.
If I am making your wave to order, the creation time is 1-3 days then shipping is based on your location. I send your order in a gift box with a note.
