"Demi Lune" - Series
This is the first in a new series of simple and chic jewelry pieces.
The focal of this necklace is a handmade Bronze half moon pendant (2-1/4" x 1"). This pendant started out as Bronze Clay*. The clay was conditioned, rolled, lightly hammered, cut out and refined. Once kiln fired at a high temperature for several hours, the solid bronze pendant was polished to attain a brushed effect.
The pendant is suspended from antiqued brass cable chain. The necklace closes with an antiqued brass lobster clasp and is approximately 28" long.
*BRONZclay™ consists of 11% tin, 89% copper, water and non-toxic binding materials. The binding materials vaporize completely during the kiln-firing process, leaving a solid bronze piece with a density 90% that of cast bronze. This precious metal is very hard and durable - making it perfect for jewelry!
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral, and in the past also intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human mind, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul, and stylized depictions of hearts are extremely prevalent symbols representing love.
The focal of each earring is a solid Bronze heart charm (5/8" x 1/2"). These charms started out as Bronze Clay (BRONZclay*). I conditioned, rolled, textured, cut, dried and refined the metal clay. Following several hours of firing in a kiln, the resulting solid Bronze pieces were polished. Finally, I applied a Silver metallic patina, giving the charms a mixed metal effect (i.e., the silver patina is in the crevices of the design, while the raised portions are a golden hue). I have re-polished and sealed the surfaces so that this effect will be maintained.
The wholesale price on this necklace is $18.00. Please message me is you are interested in purchasing Wholesale.
