Enameled copper jewelry offers inspiration.
Michigan-native Cande Toner was living in Tennessee when she took an art class in enameling… “and it just stuck,” she says. Now living in Santa Fe, Cande operates Dancing Turtle Studios where she creates enameled copper pieces. Her inspirational necklaces start with stamped words on hand-cut, hand-painted copper tiles. The pieces are then sealed with transparent colored glass, fired at high heat to bring out deep, clear color. Custom orders are available in English, Chinese, Hebrew and Sanskrit.
