Bronze Frog Pond Pendant – Secret Garden.
This Bronze Frog Pond Pendant is part of our new Secret Garden Collection.
As you look closer you can see more little details, such as the grasses that make up the unusual bail. There are lily pads and pebbles, a dragonfly and of course the little frog himself with his handmade dichroic glass body.
Allie has made this amazing pendant using two different colours of Bronze and has sculpted it into an unusual dome shape. This makes for an amazing 3D multicoloured effect.
The pendant measures approximately 4 cm across and 1.5 deep and comes on a heavyweight, decorative link, bronze chain. The chain is approximately 48 cm long.
This gorgeous Bronze Frog Pond Pendant 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.
We make all of our Bronze and Silver items using Metal Clays. These consist of very fine, recycled, metal particles mixed with an organic binder. This 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.
We think that It’s very much like Magic !
