You Can Make This

Abby Hook made Aphrodite - Garnet and copper necklace with:

  • Aphrodite (goddess of love in Greek Mythology) has been developed from my Poseidon setting from my book ' Wire Jewelry Masterclass'. The contrast of the bare wire with the woven gives the eye plenty of detail to focus on. Inside the circular frame are swirls and loops of wire and copper beads. Beautifully faceted Garnets add some colour and sparkle. The necklace is made with faceted Garnet ovals and rondelles
  • with copper beads of graduating size. The necklace is finished with a handmade hook clasp. I have oxidised this piece to highlight the detail. The necklace is 16" long and the pendant is 1 1/2" tall (including the bail) and 1 1/4" wide. Thanks for looking :)
