What is "Painting with Fire"?

I use a torch on copper sheet in an 11 step hot and cold process to obtain vibrant colors. No chemicals or dyes are used. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint, creating the glorious patterns and luminous hues on each hand cut shape.

Each one is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening. I then hand cut my designs with a jeweler's saw, shears or die cuts and many times cold connect copper with other metals with handmade rivets. I pair my little fire paintings with genuine gemstones and create my own settings with fine silver.

Most ear wires and chain are sterling silver darkened with a patina.

Firepainted 5/8" diameter copper circle with bright sanded rim dangles from a sterling silver box chain which I darken with a patina. It is finished with a sterling silver lobster clasp.

These pieces were created using a torch on copper sheet. The copper is the canvas, while the torch and flame are the brush and paint, creating the glorious patterns and luminous hues on this hand cut shape.

Each one is a surprise as I "fire-paint" until I see something magical happening. No two will ever be the same.

Please Note: These are examples only. No two are exactly the same.

If you prefer an 18" chain please let me know in the comment section at checkout.

    Materials: Heat treated copper. Color is protected with a top grade, permanent gloss lacquer. Sterling silver chain which has been darkened with a patina.
