mercy, peace and love...
May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
sterling silver and *redeemed glass necklace
This glass box charm was created using a sterling silver shaped heart that was forged by hand with the word ‘Mercy’ stamped in to the silver, it was then oxidized and encased in glass and soldered using high content sterling silver solder. The back side of this charm has the verse from Jude 1:2 …May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
the peace charm is made of sterling silver, I hand forged and shaped the silver by hand then soldered it together and slightly oxidized it.
The glass heart charm which represents the ‘love’ in the verse was made from a ‘redeemed’ bottle. The glass was melted at about 1700 degrees using a torch when the glass liquefies it’s then hand shaped into a heart.
The heart was then kiln annealed over a 9 hour process to help relieve the stress in the glass.
It was then framed using copper and soldered with a high content sterling silver solder.
* Redeemed: to make something acceptable or pleasant in spite of it's negative qualities or aspects.
The ball chain measures 30” and is made of metal.
