A replica of a Victorian mourning brooch was created using a process called electroform; depositing pure copper plating onto items using chemicals and electricity. This piece was then plated over with fine silver
This piece was created as a collaboration with my friend Lori of Lomo Studio Designs. I prepared the pieces up until the plating process, and she did the copper plating. We then sent this piece to a larger company, to plate over the copper with a thick layer of fine silver, because silver plating chemicals are dangerous to use at home.
This piece is a resin cast, replicated by the Museum of the Very Strange. The original piece resides in their collection.
A darkening patina has been added to bring out the details. This piece is hand polished, and lacquered to slow down the tarnishing process, and suspended from an 18 inch copper chain.
