Shiny copper beads alternate with 4mm irridescent glass cubes in a strand that can stand on its own or come together with other RKMixables strands for more impact. Alone, the glass beads reflect the copper, but change the background or add other colors of beads and watch the reflections change color!

This strand is right at 25 inches with the copper plated lobster clasps.

******** RKMixables Jewelry Collection *******

Sometimes you feel like a single simple strand, and other times you feel like you can't get enough of them. With my RKMixables Collection, you can choose your strands, choose your clasp, choose your focal pendant (or focals, no need to stop at just one), and wear what feels good today.

This item is part of my "Copper Collection", comprised of coordinated colorways that combine to accent the gleam of copper with other natural tones, such as turquoise. Glass beads as well as natural stones, some solid colors, some sparkly flashy things - whatever you choose, your combinations are sure to attract attention. Add a touch of bright red coral to make a powerful statement.

Each strand terminates in copper plated lobster clasps. It is possible to connect the lobster clasps to one another for a single strand, but I have designed these items to connect to a clasp with a large jump ring to anchor several strands. Each jump ring can hold 4 to 6 clasps. Extra jump rings can be added, or just add another clasp with a second set of strands. I have several clasps listed and others on hand - please ask if you don't see what you want.

Since each necklace strand is hand-strung by me with varying patterns, no two are exactly alike. The uneven lengths encourage you to twist them around, braid them, or wind one around a core of others. Start with two or three, and add more later as your budget allows.

The focals or pendants that I am offering generally have room to string at least three strands through their openings. The largest strands should be run through first, and then the smaller ones. Another option is to thread just one strand through and then weave others around the focal. Let your imagination guide you.

One of my loves in life is the asymmetry found in nature. Patterns start and then change, so that no two snowflakes are identical, nor are any two leaves or flowers. Sometimes the variations are radical, and sometimes they are so subtle that you could spend a lifetime searching for the one teensy difference. I have tried to include at least one "variation from a theme" in each of my necklace strands. One "odd" bead, one skipped pattern, a bigger bead, a smaller bead, a different color perhaps, all things that emphasize the hand-crafted process and serve to illustrate the unique abundance of life.

Most of my copper components are not treated so they will change color and patinate over time. If you wish to keep your copper items shiny bright, just dip them briefly in fresh-squeezed lemon juice until the shine returns, and then rinse in warm water. The lemon juice will not harm any of the other components used - just don't leave it to soak - one minute is usually more than enough to restore the bright metallic gleam. Please don't use even lemon juice on coral or turquoise beads - it will remove the polished finish on most!
