Amber and Quartz in Sculpted Copper
(Chepstow, S. Wales)
Wire Wrapped Stone Pendant
Description: Rose was commissioned for this piece by chance, but wow, what a great coincidence! Looks great, Rose!
I was looking for art paper and after a couple of hours searching the town, we were getting in the car when my friend said, "Try the art shop right there". I thought it would be too expensive but I went in.
Well I got my paper, cheapest in town, the lady saw the wire work pendant I was wearing and I informed her I made jewelry.
Two days later she called me to do some work for her partner, seemingly he had been searching for a wire worker to put some stones in a pendant for himself, and had asked the Universe to send someone.
A week later he was giving me his stones to make his pendant.
This is the finished product. He loves it.
The wire is copper 18g/1.00mm for the structure. 20g/0,80mm square for the bail and round for the weaving structure and 27g/o.315mm for the weaving and coiling.
I added to his piece of amber and quartz 5 fresh water pearls to accent and balance the piece, he informed me later that pearls were his first love.
It measures 6cm x 3cm approx.
