Winter Raven, rustic copper necklace with hand drawn raven in vitreous enamel

Introducing the Winter Raven A rustic hand cut copper necklace featuring a hand drawn raven in vitreous enamel in white, grey and brown on an etched link chain.

The focal consists of a Raven, hand drawn in graphite, which has been carefully fired into the surface of vitreous enamel. This process requires careful watching. If the piece gets too hot the graphite image will fade, and can disappear.
Behind the Raven I have hand sawn copper to resemble the shapes of bare branches on leafless trees.
The Raven cabochon has been tab mounted and cold riveted to the base.

A simple chain made with etched links ends with one of my fabricated hooks which has a round end to prevent scratching.

All metal has been oxidised and coated with archival quality wax and buffed to a soft sheen.

The focal is approximately 50mm x 55mm so it is quite bold
Length: the necklace hangs around 450mm

Enamel is a layer of glass that is bonded to metal by the application of heat. Although very resistant to everyday wear, care is needed to ensure the surface does not suffer damage. eg dropping, striking and bending the copper. Do not expose to salt water or pool chlorine.

My jewelry is made by hand, including cutting, shaping, buffing, oxidising, enamelling and other processes. As it is handmade, imperfections, tool marks and other asymmetries may appear. These are not defects but signs of the makers hand and are to be celebrated.
