Strong Enough for a Man...





















I set out to make a necklace for a man. I asked my husband what he thought of it and he said it was "rad." I'm going to assume that means I accomplished what I had set out to do. This awesome necklace features a Russian serpentine nugget wrapped in copper, suspended on a section of hand woven copper wire knitting (known as Viking Knit.) From the viking knit are hand wrapped endcaps, then necklace continues in black 3mm leather and then capped off with more hand wrapped endcaps and a hand formed and hammered hook and eye closure. It was oxidized and hand polished for visual texture and contrast.

It's approximately 19.5" long from tip to tip. The hanging stone pendant is .69 inches from bale to tip and .69 inches from side to side.

This necklace as well as all of my other handcrafted jewelry is available directly through me, or on Etsy.
