I LOVE TO WIRE JEWELRY! There - I said it in all caps so you know it's true! It has a very calming affect on me. It might be a little hard on the eyes, but I still love to do it.
All of my wired pieces are made from copper, brass, sterling or argentium wire. Most of them are 20g, 22g and 28g wire. I love adding beads or other objects I've bought or found.
This necklace reminds me of a 12 string guitar that has been well loved and used. This piece was wired with 22g and 28g copper wire and then dipped in a patina to bring out the details. The piece is 1" wide by 1 1/2" long and hangs 13" from a copper chain with a copper hook and eye clasp.
This necklace is made from copper wire and then sealed but may tarnish if not stored properly. An anti-tarnish pad comes with the piece and should be kept together to prevent tarnishing. A soft jewelry cleaning cloth should be sufficient if needed.
