These were the items I ordered for my project. I love the Crystal Red Magma heart and I love that color with copper. So, copper chain was an obvious choice. I, also chose the copper heart leaf pendant because I've been wanting to use one of those copper leaves in some project. This one was so pretty and perfect for my idea that I was thrilled to find it. So, as I ordered my pieces I designed my project. I don't ever do that, but this idea presented itself almost as a whole as I began chosing components! Wish that would happen more often!
This is the finished necklace. It came together almost as I had envisioned it. Again, very unusual for me since most of the time I don't start with a clear idea of what I'm going to end up with!
And, here's a close up.
I used the copper pendant as a closure, making the hook out of 16 gauge copper wire. A nice feature of the design is that I can use the hook in one of the links of chain and have the copper heart hang free. That was something I hadn't anticipated but I like the option of having a long necklace, or a shorter one depending on what I'm wearing it with or my mood!
Well, I hope you all have a restful Sunday. The weather in my part of the world is gloomy and rainy, a perfect studio day!
