The pendant measures at a about 2 inches, including the handmade bail; it’s width is about 1 inch at the widest point. The necklace length is about 18 inches, princess length, including the handmade clasp. This pendant is reversible, providing the convenience of 2 different looks in one design!
Have you ever stopped to admire the beauty of a flower- or even a single petal? Natural and amazing, flowers inspire me. Their strength and gentle curves fascinate me and I love the challenge of trying to capture that delicate effect with metal.
Made from copper sheet, this pendant was hand-sawed to size, folded, hammered, torched, shaped, filed and formed into this one-of-a-kind original Butterfly Sundries design. It features a heat patina which further enhances its beauty and creates a visual effect reminiscent of the colors you might find in a real flower. After a hole was drilled, I strung it on a prefabricated copper chain; all the other connections are handmade with copper wire.
Part of the beauty of this original Butterfly Sundries design is its versatility. Attractive from the front or the back, you have the flexibility of two different looks with one pendant. Wear it how you like; it’s up to you!
Copper does, of course, over time develop an attractive patina. This is part of the beauty of the material. The pendant does have a thin protective layer of wax to protect it, but expect the other colors to develop over time.
