Braided Turquoise Jasper and Bronze Necklace
This necklace is unique and has a comfortable earthy feel.
The focal of this necklace is a handmade Bronze pendant (7/8" diameter). This pendant was handcrafted from Bronze Clay (BRONZclay*). The clay was conditioned, pressed into the mold of an antique button, entitled, "Lotus". The clay was dried, refined and kiln fired for several hours. The resulting solid bronze was antiqued and polished to highlight the intricate details.
The supporting necklace is also completely handmade. Turquoise Jasper rondelle stones are braided to one another with brown linen cord. The necklace is finished with antiqued bronze components and is approximately 18" 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!
