A wanderlust pendant handmade using a copper etching technique and earthy patinas, with mountain design. An idea gift for the traveler or explorer in your life.
I've had so much fun in the imaginatarium lately playing with blow torch enameling and copper etching. I love how this necklace has turned out with a real rustic feel to it. I have aimed for a Roman-Greek feel to this pendant, perhaps in the style you may find on an archaeological dig!
I've etched a mountain motif on to copper sheet and cut it out with a circular metal punch. The piece has been given an earthy patina, like the hills and the valleys and also aged by hand for that deep bronze look. After it has been sanded for distressing, the copper charm is sealed with wax to help maintain the finished effect.
I have paired the mountain etched copper charm with two Czech glass beads in a Picasso finish combined together using sterling silver wire. Copper is like a living metal and will change over time depending on how and where you wear them. I think this adds to their story though and their organic appeal! I wouldn't recommend you wear it in the shower though.
The hand forged charm is a dainty 1.5 cm tall and the overall length from the top of the wire to the base of the charm is 4 cm.
