Fantasy DRAGON SKIN Statement Pendant Necklace, Verdigris Green Copper & Brass, Riveted Metalwork w/ Handmade Raku Pottery Cabochon, #P0051
'CITY HALL RELICS', featuring 100+ year old verdigris copper repurposed from the original roof of the old Tacoma City Hall clock tower. One of a kind, earthy, strong... tough, yet sexy. The wonderful old green copper has been hand cut and hammered, which compresses and polishes the original verdigris patina, giving it the look of enamel. It's a distressed finish, with the old copper showing through the green verdigris in places; the exposed copper along the cut edges is a lovely contrast, brightening the whole look. The copper is layered over NuGold (red) brass with a rolled bail. I torched the brass and then pickled it to give it a more coppery look while retaining the brightness of brass.

The focal 'stone' is Raku-glazed pottery by my friend Harry Wood of Oscar Crow. He made a mold from the skin of a gar (fish), but in my world this is dragon skin. The cab is surrounded with toothy brass chain and securely set with six handmade brass prongs. The layers are joined via copper rivets.

The pendant measures approximately 3 inches across and 3-1/4 inches top to bottom. The opening on the bail is about 6mm wide. It comes on a 20 inch brass cable chain that I have flame painted (torch patina), giving it complimentary rainbow colors. Closes securely with a gold plated swivel lobster claw clasp. The end of the chain is decorated with a hand made raku pottery bead dangle.

This is a finished piece, ready to ship. You will receive the piece shown in the photos.
