A heart shaped copper pendant with three lines of silver wire fused to it's surface. The wire is shaped into sinuous curves, a little bit like lines of lightning running down the sky.
The heart is slightly eccentric in shape which adds to the interest of the pendant. The silver is fused to the copper using a blow torch, after cleaning and gently curving the copper is reheated a little to give a subtle coloured patina. The piece is then polished.
The pendant hangs from a natural coloured, thin leather thong by a copper jump ring. The thong is fastened with sliding knots so the length is adjustable.
The pendant measures approximately 4cm at it's longest and 2.25cm at it's widest point.
Part of a series of pieces made using a blowtorch to fuse silver wire to copper shapes. The copper shapes are bought pre-cut and I mostly use pure or fine silver as it melts more easily. The technique is quite unpredictable as the silver will not always melt as expected, sometimes fusing really easily and others refusing to adhere at all or spreading in a liquid pool. This one has worked quite well leaving recognisable pieces of wire but fusing them well to the surface. The third image shows the piece immediately after cleaning.
