earth water fire and life, handforged copper and gemstone necklace

Fire, Water, Earth... Life necklace.

 

I hammered and forged the pendant from solid copper, and fired it to a deep rosey and bronze patina.

To symbolise life, I wrapped bronzite, bloodstone, and tree agate on it. Bronzite for earth, tree agate for plants, and bloodstone for animals, which we are part of.

 

One side of the linked chain is for the waters, oceans and seas. Aqua blue natural fluorite and opal blue natural amazonite.

 

The opposite side is for the fire and the sun. Deep orange carnelian and warm fire agate.

 

Ying and Yang, Coolness and Warmth, the elements of life.

 

A necklace full of symbols.

 

The lenght is 18.5inch (47cm). The pendant is 2inch (5cm) long. Made of solid copper and gemstones, closed by a toggle clasp.
