I hand forged 20g copper wire into the shape of a heart and hammered it lightly for added strength and texture. The freshwater pearls add a touch of elegance; I carefully wire wrapped them using copper wire. You will find a small pearl on each side of the heart and clasp, very pretty! I used 24k gold plated jewelers wire and a handcrafted copper clasp to bring this dainty necklace to a finish. Adding to the charm of this rustic necklace is the mixed metal feature; all findings used are 14K gold fill. So versatile, pair with gold or copper accessories.
Over time, copper naturally tarnishes to an antiqued patina; to restore it's shine clean with lemon juice, distilled vinegar or ketchup. When not wearing, store in an airtight bag.
