Bronze Focal Bead & Sapphire Necklace
This lovely Bronze Focal Bead & Sapphire Necklace combines our own handmade textured Bronze Bead with 8mm Natural Sapphire beads and 6mm Snowflake Obsidian beads.
Yes! That’s right REAL Sapphires! It’s such a lovely combination!
Of course the handmade Bronze element, lovingly handmade by Allie, is what sets it apart and makes it so special.
It’s a one of a kind piece, as many of our designs are. This is because the Bronze element is individually made by hand, so no two are exactly the same !
As we like to say… it’s designer jewellery at affordable prices !
The necklace measures approximately 46cms (18″) and the Focal Bead is about 3 cm across
This gorgeous Bronze Focal Bead & Sapphire Necklace will be dispatched to you wrapped in acid free tissue paper, in one of our pillow boxes made of recycled card.
There’s a wonderful range of colours in the Bronze Clays. They range from a silvery white to a colour that is almost copper. So as a result Allie often makes pieces that are multicoloured !
All the Bronzes oxidise naturally over time, so a little polish now and then will keep it shiny. Although a lot of people like the antique look this patina gives the metal. Mainly because the pieces appear to have been excavated from an ancient site.
Our Bronze and Silver items are made using Metal Clays. These consist of very fine, recycled, metal particles mixed with an organic binder, which results in a material that looks and behaves just like ordinary pottery clay.
However, when it is fired in a kiln, at temperatures exceeding 800 degrees Celsius, the binder burns away and the Metal Particles fuse together. This is a process called sintering and it causes a new piece of metal to form, in whatever shape we have sculpted or moulded it. Like the bronze charms in this bracelet!
We think that It’s very much like Magic !
