Made by Felicia
This piece is incredibly detailed and entirely handmade. I melted pieces of copper wire to make balls on the end, then cut, hammered, and torched a copper circle for the base. I hammered each piece of wire to add texture and strength and then I took one large unique Herkimer diamond placed it gently inside and closed the cage. The final touch on this piece is a matching handmade copper wire clasp. This amazingly detailed cage hangs from lovely olive green leather cord. Can be made any length you would like. The last photo is of a previous Herkimer diamond cage that already sold. This is a great unique piece sure to capture lots of attention! The fourth photo shows the piece prior to assembly of the cage. All copper is left untreated to allow you the full health benefits of copper jewelry.

The Health Benefits of Copper
Modern science confirms what people around the world have known for hundreds of years. Copper is an essential nutrient, playing a vital role in keeping bones, skin, brain, blood vessels and immune system strong and healthy. Copper also has anti-bacterial properties useful in slowing the spread of illnesses. Because copper can be absorbed through the skin, wearing copper jewelry has become a simple, popular way to reap the benefits of this lovely metal. Although modern science has not provided specific evidence of the health benefits of copper jewelry, many still swear by it, and copper jewelry remains in high demand.
Everything I make is made by hand in my home studio. Each piece comes lovingly packaged in an organza bag inside a handmade paper box. I have been crafting jewelry for 10 years and counting and my craftsmanship is apparent in every piece. This is what sets a real artist apart from those who "make jewelry." I make sure everything is perfect down to the tiniest of details!
