Assemblage Necklace no. 1

Statement: This is my first attempt of making my assemblage work wearable. I organized these objects while in a flow state, and once I had a rough idea of the overall shape, sawed out, bent, and added a liver of sulphur patina with a heat treatment to a textured sheet of copper that used to hang above my Nonna’s fireplace. I then took resin mixed with concrete dust to use as the base for the objects to sit in after it cured.
