    Thanks, friends! i sold one of these at my show last week. I really liked it, so I made myself one to keep! :D It is very comfortable (to me) for wearing. i have the copper loose so it does not sit as a choker, but rather lays like a torq!

    Very unique design Lorrie! I’ve made a few similar necklaces with memory wire. They are quite comfortable, not binding for a shorter necklace. And I love the combination of stones you used in this piece.
