Atlantis necklace

Frosted glass neckace

I’m really pleased with this design. It looks like a find from ancient Greece, or perhaps Atlantis? It has a beautiful shape and sits very elegantly on the collarbone and the aqua green and blue are a perfect complement for the warm, rich tones of the copper.

Filigree necklace

Filigree necklace

I made this using 14 gauge copper wire, so the central piece is quite solid and weighty. To create the antique patina I heated it with a blow torch until it was a glowing cherry red. The resulting patina is dark and chalky, with hints of warm orange.
