Antiqued copper rope style necklace showcasing 3 large blue green Chrysocolla beads, each separated by a length of tightly coiled spiral rope, hand crafted from fine copper wire.  The beads are gorgeous blue green Chrysocolla beads, which I think look like tiny globes with the earth and sea colouration, taking the colour from the heavy copper deposits in the places where it forms.  It is found in many area of the world, from England, the US, South America, Africa and Russia.

The central feature curve of this antique copper necklace joins to a length of solid copper belcher chain which fastens with my own hand crafted hook and loop clasp. This necklace is entirely hand crafted, I made everything myself other than the beads and the chain section. Each Chrysocolla bead is shouldered by chunky copper rings to seat the rope sections.

There are many feet of wire tightly spiralled in the rope sections, giving the necklace a nice substantial weight in wear. The necklace has been antiqued to enhance the texture of the spiral rope sections.

At present the whole necklace measures 495mm (19½") overall and I would suggest that it be shortened to taste to fit around the collar bone, I've left it deliberately long to allow me to finish it to your requirements, so please do let me have the size that you'd like it.

The necklace measures 10mm (0.4") at it's widest; the diameter of the beads and the central feature section measures approximately 100mm (4").
