Turquoise Copper Lion Fish Pendant Necklace
A genuine lion fish encased in thick genuine copper using an electroforming process. The lion fish is totally preserved in the copper, making the once extremely fragile specimen extremely durable for wearable art. The copper casing is not as heavy as one may think and displays some of the smallest details of the fish. Photos really don’t do this piece much justice as it sparkles in the light.
Red Swarovski Crystal eyes and turquoise adorned spine, the lion fish is almost 3” long and just over 1” width without the spikes. Total pendant is just over 2” x 3”.
The handmade necklace is 21 ½” long with a metalsmithed copper toggle clasp, silver lined black Preciosa glass seed beads and fish vertebrae bone beads.
