Large Earthy Wonderstone Pendant Necklace, mixed metal
Bold and colorful pendant necklace featuring natural wonderstone rhyolite stone pendant attached to a handcrafted mixed metal links chain with deep red lampwork beads.
I chose to go with a mixed metal design for this necklace because I really like how oxidized copper complements the dark yellow color waves in this beautiful stone.
The necklace chain is entirely handmade from solid copper and sterling silver wire. Heavy gauge copper bars were hand forged into double paddle "sticks", sanded, drilled, and joined by sets of soldered silver circles and wire wrapped lampwork bead links. Silver wire coils wrapped around the "sticks" are soldered to stay in place and have no chance of unwrapping or catching clothes.
This necklace was antiqued (oxidized) and meticulously hand polished.
- Length of the necklace - approx. 49cm (19.3 inches)
- The pendant is 5.5cm tall (2.2 inches), including the bail
Necklace closes with a handmade hammered silver hook clasp.
