Sizzlin Summer Challenge - Solar Flair

Vote for my piece in the
Etsy Jewelry Artists Guild's
Sizzlin Summer Challenge
July 1 - 15th

I had to design a piece that was artistic yet wearable and within the theme. I call it
Solar Flair

This necklace is a Byzantine Crown pattern made from copper.
It started out as nothing more than a strand of wire on a bolt.

Each jump ring was molded and cut by hand.
The back of the necklace is composed of 18g copper. As the necklace comes forwards, it gradually tapers into larger 16g copper rings to form the Crown. A fire red glass bead is fixed at the center. The clasp is also forged by hand from 14g copper wire. The entire piece took 3 days to create.
