Bright, spicy colored Mexican fire opal nuggets are paired with natural turquoise rounds and chocolate aventurine. The fire opal nuggets are gorgeous! Bright oranges, deep cranberry, cream, brown and several clear, transparent spots. They are very organic stones, cut in a free-form shape, the largest being 21x13mm, the smallest 19x17mm. They have smooth, beautifully polished and faceted surfaces, and their crystallization patterns are each unique to themselves.

The 12mm turquoise rounds are in shades of blue, green, and brown, with lots of matrix. They are completely natural stones and as such, are quite rustic, with not-quite-round shapes and pitting that is inherent in this stone. The 12mm chocolate aventurine are polished to a high shine and provide great contrast to the organic look of the turquoise.

Each nugget and round has been wire wrapped in aged copper wire, either to each other, or to the large link copper chain. This is an awesome chain! We have aged it and then tumbled it to a high shine. The aging of the copper in the chain resulted in a variety of copper tones from dark chocolate to a rosy copper. When you look at the chain in the pictures, the orange copper colors you see are the mottled colors from the aging process - not a rusting process!

The necklace has a double strand section of beads and chain in the front, with a single strand around to the back. There is a large S-hook clasp in the back that we have formed from heavy gauge and aged copper wire; it has been hammered well so it is very strong and sturdy. You can see the clasp in the last pic.

The piece is 28 inches long, and at that length, it can easily be tossed over the head without using the clasp. This piece would look just as good over a simple black sheath as it would over a favorite long sleeved tee.
