Child Face in Woven Copper

Child Face in Woven Copper a setting Necklace #2

This is the second in a series of papoose-type necklace pendants designed by Alone Star Jewelry. The first was made probably three years ago, and looking at the pictures of the sarcophagus paintings at Fayum brought the idea to life again. This time copper wire was textured by use of a rolling mill, then woven to create the body of the piece. The youthful face is made from polymer clay and painted with acrylics, framed by another piece of textured copper. This piece has a nice hefty feel without being too heavy, and is just over 2.38″ tall, 1″ at its widest, and from the back to the front of the silver buttons, 0.5″. Copper rope chain is 26.75″ long.
