Thames sunset - triangular green and grey foldformed copper pendant

Details

Subtle handmade foldformed pendant in heat treated and patinaed copper. Reversible! The foldformed copper strip that yielded this set of pendants and earrings, involving the applied silver-grey and blue-green (verdigris) patinas and the colors that came out from heating the copper in the foldforming process.

Simple foldformed truncated triangle approx. 2" long, 1-1/8" wide. Shown earrings are also available. 18" rubber cord shown.

The pendant is folded from a sheet of copper. It comes with a rubber or silk cord with rare-earth magnets for its catch. The cord will be provided at 18" (as shown), unless you specify another length. The jump-rings are gold-filled. The patina on the copper comes about from heating the copper to a glow, then after it has cooled, heating again while brushing on silver and blue-green patinas. The copper is sealed with lacquer to keep the colors bright and prevent wear and oxidization.

We have been working with foldforming techniques for a couple of years now. Foldforming involves folding and hammering sheets of ductile metals to create three-dimensional forms which arise naturally from the compression and spreading of the metal. In this style, which we call a Groove, a t-fold is made in the vise, resulting in a crevice in the metal, a subtle but important design element.

This patina is an unusually fortuitous result, with the natural colors of the heated copper glowing through flaked bits of the patina like sunset on water. But this pendant can also be reversed to show the mottled browns of plain heated copper for a different effect, to wear with a different outfit.
