Copper Garland

About this design:

This necklace is a study in copper. I think the copper flowers go beautifully with the leaves and the floral festoon pendant.


Copper floral festoon pendant, copper flowers, Czech glass leaves, 8mm copper beads and faceted copper hematite.

    Althea, you are so creative in designing these focal areas with the curved links–I love this one! The green leaves so wonderfully highlight the copper throughout & like how you used the flower coin beads with the floral pendant. Very pretty necklace. This would look awesome with a tan sweather. :)

    Beautiful Althea. I love the way you used the copper pendant below the coin flower. And the bright green transparent leaves add a nice contrast.

    Outstanding necklace!! I agree 100% with what everyone else has already said so beautifully. I love every necklace you have shown. However, this is my favorite of all. This would be great year round.

    Copper flowers– I don’t think I have any of those, and I’ve been hunting flower beads for a while. You come up with some really fine beads, and make interesting combinations. Thanks for sharing!

    This is a such magnificent piece! How do you keep the copper from tarnishing, please?

  12. Althea A
    Althea A says:

    Chicly Red-haired Grammy. I’ve had the focals and copper plated beads for about a year now and they haven’t tarnished. I suppose they will eventually tarnish, but so far so good. They have been in plastic bags and I think it’s a good idea to keep the necklace in a plastic bag when not in use. When they do tarnish they’ll look vintage.
