Sculptural Dragonfly Labradorite Pendant/Broach

  • Image 1

Product Description

This is one of my newer hand-sculpted pieces. The dragonfly is very large with a golden shimmery Labradorite as its main stone.  It has blue Sapphire gemstones set in the eyes.  The Dragonfly was hand carved by me and has 22K gold accents. The piece is a pendant or broach for versatility. It measures 2.5 inches in width by 3 inches in length.

The pendant  is hand sculpted by me.  I use a Precious Metal Clay blend that allows the pendant to have the strength of Sterling, but not the tarnishing.  I then hand-carve the designs in the metal and when happy with the design, fire it at high temperatures in a kiln.  This burns out the clay binders and leaves behind pure silver or gold.

 The 22K gold added into this design is created with Aura 22.  It is a 22K gold slip I paint on the piece and when it is fired in the kiln the gold molecularly bonds with the Silver to create a 22K plating that will never be able to come off. I then add a patina to the piece that will darken it, turn it a copper color in places, or may even turn the silver rainbow-ish. I will then seal the silver to keep it from ever turning another color.
