Once again Melosi has been able to capture the beauty which arises out of destruction - the broken, abandoned, and overlooked, a recurrent theme in her work - but this time inspired by family history. The LASTCHANCE/LOSTCHILD collection plays with the contrasts inherent in the barren mountain landscape of Butte, Montana, which has been left ravaged by underground and open-pit mining. It embraces raw metal materials of antiqued silver and coppery tones which have been intensified by applying heat to achieve a rainbow effect, in addition to the setting of uncut, locally sourced minerals such as Pyrite and Chalcopyrite. Made in East London Rainbow ecosilver set with rough montana pyrite and chalcopyrite; antiqued sterling silver rectangular trace chain; optional micro studs made from rainbow copper and recycled sterling silver posts & backs; lacquer/resin. Always remove your lacquered jewellery when applying scent, lotions and potions, or even better, always put your jewellery on last when getting dressed. Never wear your copper jewellery in the shower or when swimming. Copper jewellery, even pieces that have been lacquered, can tarnish over time because of exposure to sulfides in the air, as well as humidity. Use a soft polishing cloth to gently clean your lacquered copper jewellery. Gently rubbing the piece with the cloth will most often restore the shine; lacquered copper shouldn't really tarnish, it just gets dull over time. Take care to protect your jewellery and always store in a jewellery box, taking care not to drop, or scratch. Color: metallic
