The Circle of Red Rose Pendant
One-of-a-Kind: A sterling silver circle has a hand-pierced rose that is backed up by a copper circle providing the pastel and ink pencils* of red. A hammered sterling silver bail is large enough for most chains. The pendant measures 2-3/8” x 2” including the bail.
All pendants come with an 18 inch leather cord with a sterling silver lobster claw clasp. If you would prefer a 16”, 20” or 24” cord, please email me at email@example.com before shipping. The bails are also designed to fit your own chain or cord.
* Colored pencils on copper is a labor-intensive process. First the copper must be very “roughed up” with a titanium sanding bit. The next step is to patina the copper with a green or black chemical patina or gesso (a special acrylic paint used by artists to texture their work). Then you apply the colored pencils in layers alternating with layers of a matte lacquer. Finally, a coat of matte or shiny lacquer is applied.
