Mermaids Tear Drop Necklace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women

What you will need

  • I have made this version of my Mermaids Teardrop necklace with heavy gauge copper wire. The central frame I have hammered smooth and the two outer frame wires I have added texture to
  • creating a contrast. The central stone is a free form Labradorite which has brilliant blue and green flashes (I have done my best to capture this in the pictures). I have wrapped the top with copper wire to create a cap. The bottom of the main frame has 5 Labradorite rondelles and copper beads of graduating sizes
  • which are attached to the frame using my Kiss Kross wrap.. The flowing frame has 3 open spirals either side
  • from which hang 3 small Labradortie drops again wrapped in fine copper wire to echo the central stone. The whole frame has a gentle smooth curve to it
  • so that it sits comfortably on your chest. Wrapped connectors attach the Viking chain
  • which is finished on either end with a handmade wire cone and the necklace is finished with a handmade hook clasp which I have hammered to reflect the central piece. I have oxidised this piece to highlight the detail and contrasting textures. The necklace measures 21" in total. The centre piece is 4 1/3" across and 2 1/3" tall which hangs from 8 1/2" of Viking knit chain either side (including clasp and connectors)
