The enameled copper pieces on this were kiln-fired. In the enameling process, powdered glass is sprinkled onto the copper and then both are heated up until they fuse together. I always fire black on the back first which leaves the copper bare at first, allowing it to be changed and pick up patterns from the heat. The unpredictability leaves each piece as unique as a fingerprint. The patterns are sealed with a clear glass enamel layer and the pieces are gently fired again to develop the color to these rusty, rich warm shades.
This necklace is truly one-of-a-kind.
