Mixed Metals Hollow Beads Necklace


Mixed Metals 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 wanted a mixed metal look, so I made a larger, hollow sterling silver bead. A simple sterling silver ball chain - with soldered end caps - completes this look.

I then added a darkened patina, hand buffed, and tumbled the metals to add shine and a slightly rustic look to the beads.  Measuring 20" in length, the necklace fastens securely with a swivel, lobster-style clasp.

The beads are hollow - so not heavy to wear.  I think the design is modern - and just a bit industrial - perfect with a black dress or blue jeans.

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.
