metal and ribbon long necklace

About this design:

This is a long necklace made from brass, copper, and purple artistic copper wire. I wanted to make a springtime spring necklace. I used the ribbon to soften the design, but also because it feels good on the back of the neck when you wear it.


copper wire, brass wire, purple artistic copper wire, copper coated jump rings, table cut gold and green & turquoise glass beads, blue/green/yellow ladder ribbon.
