First I designed my "Crazy Haired Lady", (she has become a mascot to this line, of sorts). You'll find her under Pendants in the people section. About four years later...I decided that this lady really needs a cat, so I designed the Crazy Haired Cat Pendant in her honor. Can you see the resemblance?
My process for making the copper components and pendants: We've manipulated the color of the copper using genuine top shelf copper and changing the colors using both heat and chemistry. Read on!
Original Artwork by Patricia Healey ~ Each gorgeous genuine copper bead and pendant is handmade from sheet metal. First we cut the shapes out, then put form to metal using the technique of “Repousse”, (beating the crap out of the metal from the reverse side giving it form). We use a bronze solder which you can sometimes see as bits of gold peeking through the solder seams. To get the rich colors we use our top secret patination formula and then fire it up with a torch. Finally, the color is sealed in with a metal lacquer.
