5 Piece Copper Pendant

About this design:

The copper pieces in the pendant were made at different times and originally were not intended to be used together.

I was straightening up my work room when I found the pieces in two different areas. I was going to put them in a box of parts and pieces when I decided to see if they could be used together. Worked out pretty good so I hung them from a large jump ring and put it on a copper chain. The chain was too much of a distraction because it was very bright. Got out the handy dandy box with stringing material and chose a dark brown Greek leather to weave into the links. Looks much better. Since I didn't have a clasp handy I decided to make a toggle. It was easier this time than it was the last time.
