Beautiful Copper and Silver Infused Pendant


This rustic, bright, and beautiful pendant is going to be a show stopper.  All your friends will be intrigued.  I began by selecting an 18 gauge copper sheet to give the pendant weight.  I then hand textured the piece and added an Argentium sterling silver hanger. From there, I infused Argentium sterling silver on the front of the pendant and added sterling silver beads to give it movement.  When I work with the infusion of the silver, I like it to be organic and not perfect.  I like to give it a freeform feel.

This pendant is displayed on a beautiful, antique patterned brass chain complete with an Argentium sterling silver closure.

Each piece is hand signed by me and I finish the front of the pendant with Renaissance Wax.  Renaissance Wax is used in Great Britain at the national galleries for preservation.

Argentium® Sterling Silver is a patented and trademarked alloy that is at least 92.5% pure silver, just like traditional sterling silver. What makes it different from traditional sterling silver is that a small amount of germanium replaces some of the copper that is usually the other 7.5% of sterling silver. Peter Johns, a professor of silver smithing at Middlesex University in England, invented Argentium® Sterling Silver in 1996.
