Upcycled Glass Jewelry, Electroformed Purple Glass Statement Pendant Necklace, Recycled Glass, Gift for Wine Lover, Glass Bottle Art
This one-of-a-kind glass pendant is recycled from a damaged purple glass dinner plate. The plate was cleaned and carefully broken into pieces. These pieces were then arranged in a mold and fused in a kiln to a temperature that joined the pieces together. The glass has been fully annealed in the kiln.
Then, conductive paint was applied to some areas, and the entire piece was electroformed to leave a thick layer of copper on those areas. This particular piece was left a bright copper color instead of letting it patina. Finally, it was coated with a sealant to preserve the bright copper color.
Copper patinas evolve over time, so the copper may eventually darken and form a patina. This is normal and can result in a beautiful range of colors. Heavy wear and exposure to chemicals (like swimming pools and hot tubs) may cause the sealant to wear off prematurely. In this case, the patina will continue to change at a faster rate.
