As cheerful as a sunflowers, this etched copper & gemstone necklace features rich, warm colors & a whimsical sun face design. First, we created the focal piece from sheet copper, hand sawn in a tear drop shape. The detailed sun face design is a stamped pattern, which is then acid-etched. Next comes cleaning, oxidizing & polishing. Set up with a handmade "snail bail" of heavy gauge copper & sterling wire, it hangs from the strung bead section of the necklace. The colorful beads include natural lemon & cognac Baltic amber nuggets, vintage amber resin "knuckle" beads, petite faceted garnet teardrops & carnelian cylinder beads. There's also silver heishi & copper granulation spacers.
Black woven cotton cord finishes the necklace's length & it closes with a handmade, oxidized copper toggle clasp.
The necklace measures 20" (50.8 cm) in total length, including the toggle clasp. The focal measures 2" (5.08 cm) in length, including the bail, and a little under 1" (2.54 cm) at it's widest point.
