Necklace – Copper Wren with Blue Lace Agate Wings


My exploration with copper electroforming continues. A copper wren with wings made from blue lace agate. Vintage brass and bone beads lead to a double strand, one made from Sodalite beads and the other blue adventurine chips.


I hand built the wren’s head, adding four copper wire connectors. Next I added a layer of copper by electroforming for several hours. Then a patina was applied to highlight the details.


Signed on the backside.


The Copper head is about 2 1/2” wide and a nice weight made possible by the electroforming process.


The brass chain enables the necklace to be adjustable from 17” to 22” with an additional 2 1/2” for the bird’s head. Three stones of blue lace agate drop from the chain symbolizing tail feathers. An original piece of art ready for you to wear. Available in my Etsy shop RAEvNsNest here.
