Hand painted Mandala Necklace



The mandala design on this necklace was hand painted using a quill pen and vintage china paints from the 1930s.  This enamel piece is mounted to the copper backplate with prongs and features a hidden bail.  A finishing touch is the copper mandala that is imprinted on the back side.

This enameled piece started out as a hand cut piece of copper.  I sifted Vitreous Enamel (pigmented powdered glass) onto the copper, heated with a torch or kiln to 1500 degrees farenheit until the glass melted and adhered to the copper.  This process of sifting and firing on both sides of the copper is repeated multiple times for coverage and durable longevity.  The edges of the piece are then polished to remove excess enamel and to show the copper edge.  

Necklace is a 2 inch circle and hangs from a 17 leather cord with a 2 inch extender.
