Mielikki - Goddess of the Forest Necklace - Labadorite, Amazonite and copper
Labadorite, Amazonite and copper
For this necklace, suitable for a Goddess of the Forest or a forest Nymph, have used the earthy colours of Copper wire with Labadorite and Amazonite stones.
Completely handmade,this necklace has a hook clasp, which is connected to a single piece of Viking knit chain that is finished with wire end caps and Labadorite beads. This chain is connected to a 2 strand spacer, which I have made with copper wire, shaped into a triple spiral, hammered and then embellished with Amazonite and copper beads. This connects to 2 strands of Viking knit chain, each finished with wire end caps and Labadorite.
The striking central detail is made using a piece of Labadorite, which I have set in a frame of heavy gauge copper wire, from this hangs several dangles made from hammered coppered wire.
The necklace is 26" long. The central detail is is 2 3/4" from the top of the Labadorite stone, to the bottom of the longest dangle. The central stone measures 1" in it's setting.
I have oxidised this piece to highlight the detail
