Opera Length Silver-plate Wire Wrapped Cabochon Glass Bead Necklace
Opera length necklaces are a classic accessory. This frosted white and clear bead necklace is one of a kind. Dangling from the middle is a unique stone cabochon in soft grays and white striations. The stone is wire wrapped in square German silver-plated wire. As the wire ebbs, flows and swirls around the stone it emulates the movement of the stone striations. The bail on the pendant is large enough to easily slip on and off the necklace. To assist in keeping the pendant in place while wearing, the center bead is a saucer shape and fits between the two wires of the bail. The necklace can be worn alone. The pendant can be worn on a different chain, cord or even a Kumihimo braided necklace.

Wire Sculpture Defined:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Wire sculpture refers to the creation of sculpture or jewelry (sometimes called wire wrap jewelry) out of wire. The use of metal wire in jewelry dates back to the 2nd Dynasty in Egypt and to the Bronze and Iron Ages in Europe
Because the needed tools are simple, wrapped wire jewelry can be learned and performed in home studios by hobby artists. Some of the tools used include pliers, pin vises, file, wire cutters, and mandrels.
The wire used may be of a variety of decorative metals in different cross-sections. Wire sculpture jewelry may have beads or gemstones integrated into the design.

Even though my creations are one of a kind similar multiple items may be made for special occasions such as wedding party gifts. The items will be similar, made with like materials, but variances of individual pieces will occur due to the hand manipulation process.

I will make a prototype and email you pictures of the item for your approval. Then increased inventory can be purchased.
Great shipping, great packaging. I just thought the necklace was going to be more browns and greens and darker. It is a pretty necklace but not what I was expecting from the picture.
