This beautiful necklace features high quality neon apatite cabachon crystal set in copper on a dainty copper chain. •• Please note only the smaller oval necklace is available the other two have sold ••
To assist you to return to your natural open hearted loving place. Fostering and nurturing our self love so we may be more loving and open in all of our relationships.
The crystals vary in size from 2-3cm long and 1-1.5cm wide. They can come on either a dainty copper chain, or black cord. I can also seal the copper, if you have concerns about it reacting with your skin.
I have set this necklace through the process of electroforming. I begin by preparing the crystal and creating the bail for the necklace, which the chain will pass through. Once I am happy with the setting, I paint a conductive paint onto the parts of the crystal I need the copper to plate onto. The next step is protecting the rest of the crystal with a temporary sealant. Once I have completed these steps, I’m finally ready to put the crystal into my electroforming solution, and use electricity to move copper from one place to another. This process can take anywhere from 24-48 hours, and requires constant monitoring to ensure the process is smooth, and does not happen too quickly, as this affects the quality of the plating. Once the piece is ready, I clean it, remove any sealant from the crystal and finally, sand and polish the copper before adding a chain to finish the necklace.
It’s quite a process from beginning with a raw crystal, to the finished result and one that I absolutely love. I hope that you treasure your new piece of jewellery for a long time to come.
