These discs have a beautifully raised art nouveau kind of pattern. They measure 1.5″ around and are made with 20 gauge copper. They can be made with other sizes – you can request that via the form on my contact page. All of my textured discs can be used in various jewelry projects including earrings and pendants, to name a couple. You can add transparent enamel over the entire surface in using the enameling technique known as basse-taille. This is a technique in which the artist uses a low relief pattern in metal as the starting point. After the piece is fired the surface reflects light from the relief and creates a beautiful artistic effect.
You have the option of leaving the discs flat or requesting them shaped into concave or convex domes via the drop down menu. Add a patina to give them an old world feel and simply hang it on a necklace for a statement piece.
All items in my shop are quality pieces and all made by myself in my home studio.
