Hammered Copper Pendant

Hammered Copper Pendant
I made this pendant out of 6 gauge solid copper wire that I hand bent, hammered, and heated with a torch to change the surface to different colors. I added a clear enamel coating over the copper to preserve the colors. This piece is embellished with fuchsia colored Czech glass flowers, olivine vitral Czech glass leaves, sterling silver plated bead caps, and wire scroll work. I assembled this pendant with lead-free solder.
