Autumn Life Necklace

This is my newest piece that I have been working on. As you can tell, I have used the same clay design in the cobachon that I used in my last piece. I made a lot of that pattern. This beautiful piece was made using 20 gauge half round copper wire for the chain links, and 20 bright round copper for  the wire wrapping. I used Faux Glass Pearls: brown and white. I also added some glass beads. The chain is 24in's in length and the pendant hangs 2 1/2 in's.

I am never sure as to how to measure the length of the chain. So I measure from one end of the chain to the other.   Here is a picture to give an idea of how far it hangs down.

I won an Artisan Challenge with this necklace.  On Artisans/Designers Jewelry website.

    Cherie, I used 20 gauge half round. I am not good at describing my pieces. You stay on me now so that I get better ok ;) HUG'S
