This necklace features a maple leaf charm created from Stoneware clay. It has a beautiful golden caramel glaze with a matte finish.
For the chain I created a selection of pure copper rings. All hand forged from solid copper. Each one was cut, forged and fused by hand. The links are torch heated until molten. No solder was used. They were then given an acid bath to clean and dipped in a natural patina bath to oxidize. It is a process, but I prefer making my own findings, making each piece unique and special.
Beads include a selection of Czech glass in shades of amber, deep reddish brown, evergreen and turquoise blue. The ends close with a 12mm copper, lobster clasp.
The necklace is 16" with the Stoneware focal adding another 1".
