These gorgeous pieces are made from copper and white copper. I got the copper one in the middle and I love it! And of course I forgot to take a picture of it before I started working on my project.
The first thing I thought of to pair with my vessel was a strand of cool triangular Petrified Green Opal (or possibly copper green opal) that I've been hoarding forever. The pendant was hefty enough to stand up to the over sized stone (I knew I wanted to add just one. Originally I thought I'd do an asymmetrical design with the large stone off to one side and balance with some other gemstones, but eventually scrapped that idea. At my husbands suggestion, I decided to wire wrap the stone to the pendant for an even bigger focal! Go big or go home, right?
I then wire wrapped a bunch of faceted petrified green opal stones along with a couple of copper pineapple beads to make the body of the necklace. I'm still debating if I should have kept going and done another few sets of bead units, but I'm in a time crunch so the design will have to stand for now. I love the colors in the stones and the rustic, earthy feel of the finished design.
This is a blog hop. Check out what everyone else made this month!
