Jasper Gemstone and Copper Hollow Beads Necklace

in: Necklace



Jasper Gemstone and Copper Hollow Beads Necklace. This design all started with those hollow, copper beads. I spent an entire day making a set of these beads - hand textured, cut, shaped, forged, soldered, filed, and buffed.  I then added a darkened patina, hand buffed, and tumbled the metals to add shine and a slightly rustic look to the beads.

For this necklace, I wanted to embrace the earthy, natural feel of the copper, so I paired these hollow beads with Picture Jasper gemstones - all the colors of a Fall forest are represented in this rice-shaped beads: Rust, Wheat, Evergreen, and even the various shades of Bark. Sandwiched in-between these elliptically shaped beads are tiny rounds of jasper and copper.

Meant to be worn choker style, the necklace measures 19" in length including a 2" copper extender chain and fastens securely with a copper lobster style clasp.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
