Copper lollyPOP!


About this design:

Playing around with copper shapes, I soldered these copper rings to a long flat piece and they reminded me of little copper lollypops! Still dissatisfied, I placed some orange patina on the 'heads', and placed a small labradorite round in the center. I really liked the combo of copper with orange and grey... so I beaded up some orange aventurine, labradorite, copper beads, dichroic glass, pearl, and swarovski crystal. I threaded some sari silk through the chain to give some bulk and to tie the colors... and voila! Copper LollyPOP choker. I almost hope it doesn't sell so I can wear this one myself :-)

Components:

Swarovski, Copper componants, sari silk ribbon, freshwater pearl, aventurine, Labradorite, dichroic glass.
