Bronze Orchid Pendant
This Bronze Orchid Pendant is part of our Secret Garden collection. It’s lovingly handmade by Allie in two tones of bronze and has a sparkly Cubic Zirconia in it’s center.
It’s a one of a kind piece, as many of our designs are. This is because they are individually made by hand, therefore no two are exactly the same!
As we like to say… it’s designer jewellery at affordable prices!
It’s approx. 3 x 4 cms and on and 18″ (46cm) black leather cord. This comes to you in one of our boxes made from recycled card, supplied by a UK company.

There’s a wonderful range of colours in the Bronze Clay. 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 Clay. 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.
We think that It’s very much like Magic! Visit our Facebook Page for demos and more!
