There is something magical about this necklace and the intricate swirls and coils of copper wrapped around a beautiful Peruvian Turquoise trio of natural stones. It has an otherworldly, ancient feel. A little high-tech, even. One wants to search within the wraps for the transistor or clockwork that surely must be in there! I wish I knew how to make it "tick." That would have been perfect for this piece! As copper is significantly less expensive to "play" with than sterling silver, I kind of went wild with this one! And then went a little more wild. It took an entire day to create and then another couple of days deciding how to best showcase the wirework. This is one that you just hold and look at because there is so much going on in every part. Even the back is intriguing and attractive. The chain is attached to a double bail formed during construction with two strategically placed loops of wire.

Once completed, I oxidized the copper coils and chain and then hand-sanded to bring out the details. Finally, I burnished the metal to give it an ages-old vibe. A very labor-intensive piece, this is one of my favorites to date and expresses the style I love the best. All the metal is pure, solid copper, including the wire, chain, and clasp.

♥SPECIFICS: The necklace measures 19" long and the pendant hangs permanently from the very unusual chain an additional (almost) 2" from the bottom. The individual turquoise beads are 9mm across and the finished pendant is about 5/8" wide. I finished with a no-fuss solid copper lobster clasp to make this necklace adjustable. I would be happy to add a few inches of chain if you'd like it longer.

Metaphysically, turquoise has been said to enhance and strengthen the aura and all the organs, dispel or neutralize environmental negativity, and has been used to connect to the spirit worlds and enhance intuition and psychic skills.

Metaphysically, copper is known for easing conflict, promoting emotional harmony, and helping situations reach positive outcomes, among other uses. Better known for its healing functions, this orange to orange-red to pink metal is worn to reduce inflammation (think arthritis). Less-known uses in healing are to release tension and frustration as well as enhance brain function.
