Om is a sacred sound and a spiritual symbol in Hinduism, that signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or Atman. It is a syllable that is chanted either independently or before a mantra in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.
It is oftentimes the first and last sound that you hear when in yoga class or a meditation class...“aah”, “ooh”, and “mmm”...
My process for making the copper components. 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.
