Verdigris Tree of Life Full Moon and Flying Sparrow Necklace, Verdigris Sparrow Earrings, Verdigris Bird Earrings, Patina Tree Necklace







 I have had a life-long fascination with the moon, especially the full moon. I wanted to create a necklace to capture the mystery of the moon in the evening shadows. So, I applied a verdigris patina to a bronze Tree of Life pendant and a brass sparrow. Next, I wired in a smooth white coin pearl to dangle through the tree branches. Finally, I hung a verdigris sparrow on the chair a few inches up ready to take flight!

The round double sided tree pendant, to which I applied a verdigris patina, is 1.5 inches in diameter. Chain is antiqued brass and will wear very well. I finished the chain with small brass beads adjacent to the lobster clasp. As shown here, the chain measures 30 inches. I added a sealer on top of the patina for durability.
