This  delight features a vibrant chrysocolla gemstone set in copper on a dainty copper chain. 

The energy of chrysocolla is that of the goddess, her strength, wisdom and balance.  Bringing the masculine and feminine into alignment, whilst focussing the mind and allowing you to speak your heart. 
The crystal pendant is 3cm long and 1.5cm wide. The copper chain is 44cm long, and sealed to prevent any tarnishing or interaction with the 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.
