A gorgeously intricate, mixed metalwork necklace, this romantic piece features a hand fabricated heart focal & purple gemstone.
The heart, created in the Elksong Jewelry studio, combines brass & copper, hand sawn shapes. Textured & oxidized, they're joined together with a heart shaped piece of heavy gauge copper wire & red brass wire wrapping. At the bottom, a graceful tear drop briolette of purple amethyst is bound in 14kt gold filled wire wrap.
The necklace is created with red brass wire wrap links, each holding beads of smooth & faceted amethyst & lepidolite ovals & rondelles. There's antiqued copper caps & heishi and the links are spaced with short sections of solid copper, soldered link curb chain. The necklace closes with a front facing, handmade spiral clasp of hammered brass.
This lush necklace measures 20" (50.80 cm) in total length, including the clasp. The focal measures 2.5" (6.35 cm) in length, including the jump rings & briolette drop, and 1 & 5/8" (4.11 cm) at it's widest point.
