Handcrafted choker necklace - copper, gold and black in an Asian style inlay.

Narrow strips cut from a polymer clay mokume gane sheet were lined up, layered onto a shaped black fan of polymer and cured. These strips display glimpses of "snakeskin" and whorled patterns like wood. Then the seams were backfilled and cured again. This technique looks quite a bit like intricate wood inlay.

The back was layered with a honey-comb textured sheet of gold, then finished with layers of black acrylic paint and copper mica-tinted liquid polymer.

A black curved polymer horn, covered with pieces from the same MG sheet was chosen to serve as the top hanging component. These components were both hand sanded and buffed to a smooth, polished finish.

Both pieces were joined with a copper wire bail, to which seed and a copper bead were added. A thick, 3mm black leather thong was capped with more copper beads and a copper toggle closure. Expect these copper components to mellow in color with age.

Coordinates with bracelet

Dimensions: focal assembly 2 3/4" x 2 1/2 " overall; overall length 20 3/4" (and may be shortened with overhand knots in the leather thong)

Organza gift/storage pouch included.
