A golden Amber Lotus is the focal of this one of a kind, nature inspired necklace. The focal starts with a large, oval-ish cabochon of heat treated amber...heat treating improves color & clarity and creates "sun sparks" within the amber. A four-petaled lotus flower, formed with copper wire lays over the cabochon & is secured to a border of intricate copper wire wrapping. At the center, there's a single, twinkling Swarovski crystal of opaque turquoise.
The focal is suspended between beautifully detailed, verdigris copper finish butterflies & a tiny verdigris hummingbird hovers below.
The necklace is created with copper wire wrap links, set with a mix of beads...natural Baltic amber pebbles, heat treated amber nuggets, U.S mined, rice shaped turquoise beads, calsilica rounds & African (turquoise) jasper. Brass heishi, copper granulation spacers & beads and ornate caps of antiqued copper add more delicious detail.
Finally, the necklace closes with a handmade, oxidized copper wire wrap hook & eye clasp.
This rich, bohemian necklace measures about 18.25" (46.35 cm) in total length, including the clasp. The focal measures about 2" (5.08 cm) by 1.5" (3.81 cm), with the hummingbird drop falling about 1.25" (3.17 cm).
