What makes you think of hope, strength, beauty and the ability to overcome difficult circumstances? For me, the images which come to mind are of lotus flowers.
This beautiful pendant was inspired by those women who have the courage to, despite difficult circumstance, look within themselves to find their own strength and beauty… who discover their ability to embrace their power to stand up for their hopes, even in the ugliest of situations. Sometimes our tears are the raindrops that allow us to heal and grow into our potential….
Made from 20g copper sheet, this pendant has been cut to size, had its rough edges smoothed, and then was polished. The design was hand-drawn, and then it was gently placed into an acid bath which ate away the undesired portions. Once taken from the bath it was washed, antiqued to bring out the beauty revealed by its ordeal, a hole was drilled to allow it to be worn, and then it was polished. Strung on black cording, all the connections are handmade with copper wire. From the bottom of the pendant are three glass bead drops, representing the tears that bring about healing and growth.
From beginning to end, this item is handmade with love… with all the attention you deserve!
Copper does, of course, develop an attractive patina over time. This is part of the beauty of the material. It does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the beautiful patina to appear gradually.
The pendant measures at a about 1.75 inches, including the glass drops; it’s width is about 1.5 inches at the widest point. The necklace length is about 19 inches, princess length, including the handmade clasp.
