And now for something completely different :) How about a big, bold statement piece?
This necklace is made from forged copper rectangles connected by fine silver torch-balled wire. The copper pieces obtained their rich patina (blacks, browns, pinks) from the torch flame in-process. The soft glow of the metal comes from tumbling, much the way stones are polished in a rock tumbler. You can see more views / details here in the shop.
The pendant assembly is about 4" long depending on how it hangs. A better measure might be the individual components; the bigger rectangular piece is 2.5" long and each smaller square is just under one inch. I've used a commercial, up-cycled 18" sterling silver chain with two tiny clasps that connect on each side, in the front. This way, it can easily be replaced with a shorter chain for a completely different look.
This one might be a love-it-or-hate-it necklace. I'd love to know your opinion either way!
