'Passion for Life' Hand painted Enamel Pendant in Purple and Limes
'Passion for Life' enamel pendant is vibrant and stunning. Purples and limes adorn the pendant as they speak to the burst of joy found when you have that passion for living. Paths of life represented by the black lines as they make turns and twists that are so often unexpected. Rose Quartz adds its love to the piece as it sits crowning the center amongst all the choices that life has for us. This is hand painted one by one to create this one of a kind piece. The design continues to the top of the pendant where more choices are represented- these choices are already decided upon and in your life, and going up the chain are swirling into the universe.
The chain is the magic, wellness metal of copper and is all hand fabricated. The focal measures 2 1/2" in L and 2" W. The chain is 24".
Hand painting on enamels is very different from normal painting, it takes some skill to get it mastered and a lot of trial and error. This piece came out beautiful and I am very happy with it.
I love working with enamels! Some people say it is a flashback to the sixties. I was too young then to experience that and fell in love with them just recently. All my enamels are kiln fired. This is a process of melting glass onto the metal and it takes a minimum of three to four firings up to 20 firings of each piece to achieve the color layers. Before you even start with that, there is the cutting of the shapes, the sanding of the metal and then the cleaning of the metal, all before you start with to add the color. It is a time intensive process.
