When I was a kid, we had a maple tree in our front yard, and every spring I loved watching the wing-shaped seed pods (which we called "helicopters") twist and turn and whirl as they fell. This necklace is inspired by the lovely organic shape of those seed pods!

I hammered ten little seed pods of golden brass and threaded them through oxidized sterling silver chain. The pods move back and forth through the wire a bit, so that they will shift as you wear the necklace, which I absolutely love. Each time you look at yourself they'll be slightly different. (But they are in no danger of falling off, don't worry!) The chain is light as a feather (but sturdy), so it drapes amazingly and is super comfortable to wear!

The clasp is a simple handforged oxidized sterling silver hook clasp. 18 inches is the default length, but I can make the necklace any length you want (although I think it works best at 20 inches or less since the chain is so light).

The last photo shows matching earrings, which you can find here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/74752876/helicopter-earrings-oxidized-sterling

The necklace shown is my own -- I will make yours to order, so please allow an extra day or two for shipping. (Just let me know if you need them quickly, I can usually accommodate rush orders.) Because yours will be made to order, I am happy to customize the length, the number of pods, and the finish of the metals. I can also make the pods of sterling silver instead of brass if you prefer. Just let me know in the comments box at checkout!
