Copper Swirls Pendant

About this design:

I don't have a good name for this one yet. I was playing with non tarnish copper & my wire jig the other night & this is the shape I got. Then I started wiring in a piece of prehnite in the center, wrapped brios of opalite, wrapped the ends of the design. I added the leather & copper with beads to give it a more finished look & did my signature clasp to the front for it.

What do you think? What do you think of when you look at this?


copper wire, prehnite, quartz, opalite

    I am a Libra- so I see the balanced scales! LOL
    Truely a lot of work and care went into putting this together, and the end result is so unique. I am very impressed; it gives me ideas I someday want to try. Thanks for the inspiration!

    MK, I think you may have given me the name for this piece.I think I might go with – Balanced Scales and appeal to all those Libras out there! teehee Now I JUST looked and can you believe it, Prehnite is supposed to be a Libra stone!!!
