Rare Earth Necklace
by Cherie Elksong.
This abstract art necklace started with a chunk of deep green, botryoidal malachite…we’d had it for a long time, but I think I remember it came from mining in Bisbee, AZ.
The mixed metal (sterling & copper) setting was created with the same organic, free form sort of flow, two pieces carefully fitted together.
Lots of hole-drilling & wire-wrapping later, it was ready to be simply & elegantly set up on black leather cord. Definitely a statement piece!
