Details

Ronald Franco, a Peruvian artisan versed in metalworking, produces this stunning wall mask in her workshop outside Lima through an involved process. This mask goes through a strategic crafting process, with the artisan starting by shaping copper sheets by hand using a chisel, then receiving smaller detail work and finally being bathed in a solution to create the copper sulfate finish. This mask is a reproduction of the larger original version, depicting an octopus in the motif of a personified sun beaming at the earth below.

"Copper & Sodalite Special Cross"

I like this cross! It is so pretty and it matches the one I bought a few years ago that has cut up turquoise for the stones. I feel it is very well made and very good workmanship.
