The owl pendant is a collaborative effort between the mother/daughter team of Evie and Beth. Beth (daughter) taught Evie (mother) how to saw and enamel. Both Evie and Beth took a lampworking class and have been making jewelry with their own lampwork glass beads and enameled copper pendants ever since.
The owl is hand-sawed by Evie from a 20 gauge piece of copper with a jeweler's saw. The pendant is then enameled by Beth. Beth loves to play with the powdered enamels to see what kind of colors can be created. Beth likes to apply multiple layers of enamels to give the pendant its rich colors. The pendant is kiln fired and counter-enameled.
The enameled powders used were: black, white, transparent oil/elan gray.
The pendant dimensions are a little over: Width – 3 1/16" Length - 3 1/16"
Suggested uses: suncatcher (use suction cup), rear view mirror, ceiling fan dangle, component for wind chime, purse jewelry, bow accent on gift box, keyring dangle, jewelry component, or add a ribbon for a bookmark, etc.
This piece is a one-of-a-kind treasure and a great gift for yourself or someone special. The glass enamel may crack or break if handled roughly or dropped.
