These claw shaped charms are cut from 24 gauge copper sheet and slightly domed. They have a purple and yellow background with black and cream webbing. They are torch fired, counter enameled with clear, and measure 25x26mm
Enameling is the process of sifting layers of powdered glass onto a metal base and heating until the glass is molten. Most of my components are very organic looking and have multiple colors. I love the contrast and mottled patterning that can be achieved through both crackle and separation enamels and I continually experiment with them to get new “recipes”.
These components are essentially glass on metal and are durable, but care should be taken with them. They can break if stressed, dropped or pinched with pliers.
