Steampunk cogs and gears fantastsy pendant with labradorite. Made with copper metal clay, then electroformed with the stone and gears and added patina to produce a shabby, grungy look, this piece is then partially plated with fine silver to accent some of the details. Very unusual to combine all these techniques, and the result is a totally unique piece of jewelry.
This piece comes with a cord necklace ready to wear. You can choose to purchase a copper chain in any available length starting at $5.

Electroforming is an amazing process that uses electricity to form a thick, durable layer on other mediums, such as organically, stones and other metals. It’s a slow and unpredictable process that yields beautiful and unique textures.
Each piece of my jewelry is handmade with love and care. I go through a lengthy design phrase for each piece to make sure they are beautifully composed. Then they are electroformed for 24-48 hours with careful monitoring to ensure proper formation of copper with the right amount of texture. After that patina is added and each piece is polished until that have shine as well as depth.
Care has been taken in the design to make sure elements are firmly attached. That said, please avoid dropping, knocking or sleeping with your piece. Do not bend or reshape any part of the piece.
If your piece gets caught in something, please untangle gently.
The copper will oxidize and darken over time giving it a warm deep finish. This is natural & unique to the person who wears it and the environment in which they live. The copper grows with you. You can bring back the original sheen by gently rubbing it with a soft polish cloth or brass wire brush. A green discoloration may occur, although it doesn’t effect everyone. This is not harmful to your health and can easily be washed off with soap and water. Additionally adding a layer of clear gel nail polish can help prevent this.
Place your jewelry in a baggie when not in use to help slow tarnishing. Gently use a polishing cloth if tarnishing happens.
