White Copper Pendant with Pearls
This white copper pendant is enhanced by the addition of bronze/rust colored pearls and copper wire. The pendant hangs down about 2.25" (6 cm) on a suede strip of leather and the entire necklace is 27" in length (it can be easily shortened by re-knotting it).
This pendant was made with white copper clay, a type of metal clay. It is different than copper clay as it has some nickel added in to give it the white color. After forming the pendant, it is fired in the kiln where the binding in the clay burns off, leaving the copper piece.
