A gorgeous green Aventurine lies securely nestled in meticulously woven and sculpted copper wire. Aventurine is connected to the heart chakra, and is known as a very soothing and calming stone. It is also a stone of abundance and prosperity, said to attract luck and wealth. It is associated with the zodiac signs of Taurus and Virgo.
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 2.5 inches high to the top of the bail (6 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.
This necklace is entirely one of a kind.
