The dragonfly symbolizes wisdom, change, transformation, light and adaptability in life. I sculpted this piece out of clay then plated several layers of copper on top. The pendant comes on a matching copper ball chain.
The electroforming process takes several days to complete. Once the clay hardened over 24 hours, a conductive paint was added, then the piece went into a copper solution where electricity slowly encouraged copper to plate onto the item over the course of many hours. Finally, a patina was added to mimic time wearing the copper, then highlights were polished out to create tonal variation and the entire piece was 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 sometimes turn green when there is moisture present - this is normal and will go away once the copper is no longer present. Note that 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.
