Peregrine Wired Necklace

So I bought a new tumbler and decided to make a necklace in copper, antique and tumble it.

Lovely deep aqua

Made a lovely piece with wire components and pink electroplated crystals. Dunking it into the LOS antiquing agent – the pendant went black and the rest stayed bright. I found out that the wire was coated.

Not to despair. I made a coated wire pendant for the chain I had and then made a bare wire chain for the pendant I had.

The final antiqued piece.

When it was tumbled, the coating came off the beads so I redid them and decided to change colour. Ended up with two lovely necklaces.

  • Annie, your intricate wire pendants make very interesting focal pieces – lots for the eye to travel around while looking at them, and the handmade chains feel like a natural extension of the pendants. Great idea for making two necklaces when the liver of sulfur had an unexpected result on the first one!

  • Dianne H. says:

    Your pendants are beautiful but I also like your chain components. Very unusual and creative.

  • Thank you for your lovely comments. I love doing this and love the possibilities. Problem solving skills are pretty much a prerequisite for this job.
