Copper blossom necklace

About this design:

I enjoyed the copper blossom earrings, so I made a necklace to go with. Started with 1/8 inch copper pipe that I bent into a 'U' shape, threaded 16 gauge wire through the 'U', and hammered into the neckwire. Affixed my copper blossoms to the 'U', then took some orangey pink silk ribbon to wrap it up. Added some tiny carnelian rondelles and rose quartz rondelles with wire wrapped along the ribbon... and done. I restrained myself from adding a lot of shiny sparklies. I wanted the blossoms front and center.
