"Brigid" - Reversible Pendant Necklace in Peruvian Blue Opal and Copper
A stunning original design, inspired by ferny Spring glades, reversible so you can wear it either way and have two necklaces in one!
This necklace features a dreamy Peruvian Blue Opal, robin's egg blue.
The stone is securely held by intricately and meticulously woven copper wire. This pendant has been entirely handmade from recycled copper wire. Recycled copper electrical wire is 100% pure copper, unalloyed, so guaranteed nickel and lead-free. I cleaned and straightened the wire, wove and shaped it, antiqued it with a patina finish, then polished and burnished it to a rich glow. The pendant measures about 2 inches high to the top of the bail (5 cm), and 1.5 inches wide (4 cm).
The matching chain is adjustable, from 16 to 19 inches, with a hand forged extender and hook-and-loop closure. The necklace has been signed by hand, on a tiny (1.5 cm or 5/8") leaf dangling from the hook, with both my initials and the year the necklace was made. This tag, too, was recycled - I made it from an old Canadian penny, which I heated and hammered repeatedly, then drilled, sawed, buffed until smooth, engraved, then antiqued and polished.
