Diversity Bronze Necklace
The Diversity Bronze Necklace textured in a variety of natural patterns represents the diversity of our world. The 16″ gold tone chain travels through the 3 sides pyramid shape. The textured focal bead, made of bronze metal clay, show ferns, feathers and rays. The patterns touch at the edges and flow gracefully one to another.
The bronze focal bead measures 1 1/2″ x 1/2″ x 3/4″ h. The hollow bead rest easily on the collar bone.
Our world fills with diversity in nature, in location, in each other. The process of understanding our differences takes time and work.
The Process of Making the Diversity Bronze Necklace
Diverse natural textures pressed into bronze metal clay continue the diversity theme. Micro-filaments of metal combine with a binder and water to become metal clay. The designer forms the clay into a design and fires it in a hot kiln. During the firing process binder burns away. The micro-filaments of metal fuse to become a solid metal so the polished piece becomes a necklace.
The Diversity Bronze Necklace is part of the Ancient Influences Collection.
