Torcesque - Amethite and Copper necklace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women

What you will need

  • I have made this necklace with sections of 6 loop double Viking knit chain
  • which I have finished with handmade wire caps
  • The large central 12mm round Amethite bead and the four 10mm beads either side are encased in handmade wire spirals. A thick frame wire runs through the centre of the necklace
  • allowing it to hold it's circular shape
  • so that the necklace sits just below the collar bone. Connected to the main part by wrapped loops (forming a hinge) are two more sections of double Viking knit chain
  • these make the necklace very comfortable to wear and easy to take on and off. I have finished the necklace with a handmade hook clasp and link that I have hammered to add a contrast in textures. The inside diameter is 17 1/2"
  • the main part of the necklace has an inside measurement of 11" and the two Viking knit sections at the back each measure 3" plus the hook clasp and link.
