"Copper Line"

About this design:

The white howlite trapezoid cut stones were my inspiration for this design. They are beautifully cut and have a lovely sheen. I decided to pair them with some Botswana agate nuggets that I had been hording for some time.The nuggets range in color from a dark coffee brown to light brown mixed with white. I also used small melon cut ivory colored Czech beads. My metal of choice was copper. I used saucers, daisies, and 3 other random shapes. The necklace is asymmetrical and has a toggle clasp.


5 white howlite trapezoid cut stones, 11 Botswana agate faceted nuggets, 9 melon cut Czech glass beads, 18 copper saucers, copper daisies, 3 copper beads, toggle clasp
