Dragonway Colorfly Necklace


Artist Statement: Kerri Fuhr (kerribeads.etsy.com) has an incredible talent. She makes these amazing lampwork beads one at a time, by hand. Her proportions and balance are phenomenal and her color stories and great.

I've used one of Kerri's dragonfly beads as the center of attention of this necklace. It has been surrounded by a pure copper frame that I have hand forged and hammered. Fine copper wire has been patiently woven and wound around the frame alongside Serpentine, Unakite and tiny Amethyst stone beads. The pendant is secured to quality black leather cord and fastens with my handmade spiral closure.

Necklace measures 16".
Pendant is 2" long and 2" across.

Created with love.

Naturally oxidized and meticulously hand polished to enhance the depth and texture of the wire wrapping.
