I named this necklace Summer Fun but it is perfect to wear year round because it has every color in the spectrum. When I made it I did so with a sense of wild abandon and a surge of summerlike energy. Using ancient jewelry techniques and simple hand tools I shaped, forged and spiraled heavy ( thick ) gauge copper wire into three armatures which I embellished with sterling silver, gemstones, recycled glass beads and antique glass beads. I made the chain entirely by hand and finished it with a handmade clasp that closes in the front. I oxidized the copper and sterling silver and then burnished it for a dark candlelight finish. The wirework is very strong from work hardening and burnishing. This necklace is heirloom quality and with proper care will last for generations. You can really feel this necklace's strength when you hold in your hands and it is a pleasure to wear. The beads are 3mm to 12mm. The length is 19&1/2" L and the measurements of the armatures are 1&1/2" W x 1&1/2" L, 2" W x 3" L and 1&7/8" W x 1&1/4. Copper has an ancient and warm beauty and it is also very inexpensive. Beautifully handmade and beautifully affordable!
