Yesterdays finds at the flea market were slim pickins...I only picked up a few items but did get a nice stash of beads from Mary "my" bead lady. I fell in love with some fire agate beads in the most unusual colors, I was not sure they were indeed fire agate but when Mary held them up to the light I could see the "fire" within. Lately I am loving long necklaces, I really have never liked anything heavy on my neck and since my neck surgery I can not tolerate anything touching my scar.
This piece that I made has a thinner copper chain so all the focus should be on the design of the necklace. I call this "Dusk"... The colors of this necklace remind me of Dusk, when the colors of the day blend to evening,Look to the sky you will know what I mean.
I used chunky baroque pearls for a touch of romance wrapped in copper wire and then attached them to a copper washer that I textured and oxidized. A chunky copper bead is sandwiched between some fabulous fire agate beads. I loved making this and it would be great as a short necklace as well. Tell me what you wear most often...what is your favorite piece of jewelry?
