Featured Design- Copper Pendant


Copper Forged Pendant

This copper pendant started off as a pure copper sheet! I cut the strip needed to create the bezel. The steps to create are:

  1. anneal(heat) the copper      
  2. forge (hammer) the design     
  3. anneal to soften
  4. form around the stone to fit    
  5. solder to connect   
  6.  reshape around the stone to confirm fit    
  7. solder to back plate  
  8. file and sand to smooth finish    
  9. cut out sides to create the finished piece  
  10. add the stone

Sounds easy, right?  Each step is vital to ensure the finished product is awesome!  More designs are available for sale on my web site. http://www.alenesadornments.com
