I have used heavier gauge pure copper wire for all the wire work on this piece. The emerald tumble stones are quite big as well. This is going to be a chunky necklace.
I am really looking forward to putting it in liver of sulphur and giving it a nice deep patina.
The necklace has turned out as lovely as I had hoped it would be and is now listed in my online shop. Go on! Treat yourself or some special! :-)
