About this design:
It is symmetrical! Will wonders never cease! The center section with the blue beads and copper are part of another salvage job. Don't know what it was supposed to be or when I started it but it must be older than dirt.
Sodalite looks fabulous with copper. Love the intense blues in it. The fringe that is a spacer is either 14 or 16 gauge copper wire and the circles that are used as spacers are 18 gauge. It is finished with Lima Bead's copper box chain. It's a good weight and has marvelous color.
The ear rings are made with a smaller gauge of wire and have niobium ear wires.
