Bronze & Labradorite Leaf Pendant
This Bronze & Labradorite Leaf Pendant is so detailed! You can see every little vein! A statement pendant if ever there was one!
It carries a beautiful Semi-Precious Gemstone called Labradorite that has a gorgeous flash of blue shimmering across it’s surface as it catches the light! It’s one of our favourite stones, but is so hard to photograph!
The Leaf measures approximately 6 x 5.5 cm and has a weight of 13 gm, but is not heavy or cumbersome to wear. It is on two leather cords of bronze and purple and is fastened with a dragonfly clasp. The cord is approximately 48 cm long.
This gorgeous Bronze & Labradorite Leaf Pendant will be dispatched to you in one of our 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 !
