Serpentine Art Deco Wrap Necklace


About this design:

I wrapped a 25mm serpentine cab in several layers of oxidized brass filigree and added two matching beads to the chain. When I first started wrapping the cabochon, I was just playing around and not going for any particular style. But when I was done I realized it had a bit of an art deco look to it, so I'm totally gonna pretend I did it on purpose.

Components:

Serpentine, antique brass

    Question for the designer…The antique brass designs used in your creations, are they hand made or can you purchase them? How are they made? I love all antique designs and these are simply gorgeous!

    Oops, sorry I missed your question, S Romero. You can purchase the brass online from lots of vendors. Vintaj is a popular brand that you could start with. I’m not all that knowledgeable about the process behind the manufacture of the components, though. One thing to keep in mind when you’re shopping for brass is to make sure you’re buying lead/nickel-free components. Find a seller you trust and stick with them.
