Bronze California Poppy Pendant, Verdigris Teardrop
The California Poppy is my state flower, so of course I have to have one in my collection. The petals are so thin they disappear when one of these flowers are made of metal clay so I have made a mold of bud just ready to open and some of the lovely leaves of this plant. The leaves may look familiar; I use them on the back of most of my crastions!
Hand cast using bronze metal clay. After casting and firing the pendant is then patinated and had detailed to bring out the details of the leaves. Sealed with lacquer to preserve the shine.
Each backside has a unique leaf pattern. The teardrop pendant measures about 1" tall
