Description

This autumnal copper oak leaf pendant is presented on a 18"sterling silver 1.3mm trace chain (unhallmarked). The pendant is hand made from copper art clay, the leaf is 3.5cm long by approximately 2cm across. It catches the sun, and is a beautiful yet simple pendant. After creation the clay was dried at room temperature overnight. When completely dry, it was fired with a dremel blowtorch. First burning away the organic material, then the copper is sintered for a minimum of 5 minutes at over 800 degrees Celsius with the torch. When firing has finished the piece is immediately quenched to halt oxidisation, then it is pickled. The final part of the process is to polish, firstly with a wire brush and Emery paper and for the final treatment it is burnished to bring out the definition and characteristics. Each piece is made separately and all necklaces are packaged carefully in our Beyond The Byre buff gift box and are delivered in a Jiffy bag with recorded delivery which is free for UK customers. This can be delivered as a gift, straight to the recipient's address, please send a message with the details and it will be our pleasure to organise this for you.

Inspiration

This autumn leaf design is inspired by the changing seasons and the beautiful woodland near our home in Blanchland in Northumberland, the woods are particularly spectacular at this time of year. We love wearing and using copper in our jewellery, and many believe that it has fabulous healing properties, and can help combat lethargy, passivity, restlessness, excitability. It's believed it can stimulate initiative, optimism, diplomacy, and independence. Some claim that copper helps regrow joint cartilage that has been lost because of arthritis, which helps cure the ailment and relieves pain, however studies suggest there is no clinical impact. Regardless of the lack of clinical support we both wear bracelets and we like to think it helps our aging bones, and if nothing else copper always looks beautiful.
