This metal art copper necklace is titled “The Temptation”, as it illustrates the idea of being tempted by the vicious desire. The object of temptation is represented by an attractive, sparkling red cubic zircon. The passion towards this object generates many different and strong emotions, symbolized by the flame above the stone. However, fulfillment of this desire means opening the door to the Devil standing just behind it in the background.
The pendant is hand forged of copper, using the technique of chasing and repousse. The zircon and the flame are soldered to the base with a silver solder. The pendant is oxidized to highlight the sparkling beauty of the stone and the mirror finish of the flame and the Devil. The necklace is tarnish protected with the renaissance wax.
