Memento vivere - remember to live - handmade red enamel on copper pendant

Sorry, this item has sold.

Memento vivere - remember to live.

Copper sheet, hand cut and formed into concave disc, fired with layers of deep red and pale red glass enamel (the process is like alchemy, turning the glass granules into shiny opaque glass with heat). This piece is purposefully rustic; different coloured enamel layered and fired to achieve a distressed, aged patina.

The words 'memento vivere' - Latin for remember to live - are hand stamped into the centre of the disc, wet process white enamel pressed into the indentations and fired again so that the letters and meaning stand out.

The matte black chord is salvaged electrical chord, the ends bound in black iron wire and passes across the back of the focal.

End to end around 16 1/2 inches (42 cm), The copper focal is around 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter. Closes with handmade black iron wire copper hook at the back of the neck.
