Organic and rustic yet strikingly feminine, this necklace combines the sunkissed strawberry color of raw sunstone with the natural beauty of oxidized raw copper wire, handmade lampwork glass beads, rough black tourmaline, horn, bone, a strip of black ribbon, and black lava beads.
I used the most delicious of components in this glorious assemblage necklace: a studded piece of horn hollowed out to form a tube, glossy artisan-made lampwork glass beads b y Believe's Beads on Etsy, dyed black and white bone, pitted lava stone, crystalline raw black tourmaline, and sparkling strawberry-colored sunstone in rounds, discs, and one rough hammered drop to hang down the middle.
I had a lot of fun with the raw copper wire that I used to make this necklace; bending and hammering the copper ladder and then tying glimmering discs of sunstone onto the rungs and wire wrapping stacked lampwork beads, sunstone or rings of carved horn. I formed and hammered the s-clasp myself as well.
This necklace measures 20 inches (50.8cm) long, and the handmade s-hook can be set at any length along the necklace to make it just the right length for you, allowing the rest to tubmle gracefully along the breastbone.
Sunstone is the official gemstone of Oregon, and is known for its gorgeous spangled sparkling properties. The optical effect is called "schiller," which is due to threads of copper within the stone. In the sunlight, the stone dances and shimmers as rays strike its surface.
Another piece in my Decadence series--treat yourself or give it as a gift, if you can bring yourself to do it. This lovely necklace comes boxed in brown recycled cardboard, ready for gift-giving, tied with a colorful ribbon and wrapped in crinkly stamped paper.
