I just love this angel. She's poised to push off of the ground to float on her angel wings. Of course she's got that crazy hair that I like to put into my characters, (I grew up running away from anyone carrying a comb in their hand).
She would make a beautiful focal pendant for those days that you just need to have a sweet gaurdian angel with you!
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.
