Description

I found a neat piece of textured bark on a walk and I matched it to a similar-shaped piece of fluorite I found in the Utah desert. After adhering them together, I elecroformed copper onto the bark. The result is a necklace that is much lighter than it looks (since the core is still bark) and a beautiful combination of colors and textures, especially with the added vintage chain which is 20 inches long. The pendant itself is 2.75 inches tall. The electroforming process takes several days to complete, starting with sealing the item in three coats of lacquer. A conductive paint is added, then the piece goes into a copper chemical solution where electricity slowly encourages copper to plate onto the item over the course of many hours or days. When gems or other complexities are added, additional steps are taken. Once the item has partially plated, the gems are set in place with epoxy clay that hardens for 24 hours. More conductive paint is added and the piece goes back into the electroforming solution for several more hours. Finally, a patina is added to mimic time wearing at the copper, then highlights are polished out and the entire piece is sealed for protection. Although sealed, copper shouldn't be submersed in or exposed to water or harsh elements. If the copper rests against skin, skin can turn green when there is moisture present - this is normal and will go away once the copper is no longer present. However, I haven't had this happen with necklaces myself, only rings since hands are much more moist. Copper can continue to patina, aging naturally over time. Treat your new statement necklace with care and it will become a lasting heirloom. All purchases are sent in a gift bag.
