This necklace I crocheted out of very fine copper wire. The clasp I made out of hammered thick copper wire. This necklace is very delicate and sophisticated with its sculptural quality and is 18" long from top to bottom. You simply pull it over the head. This piece of jewelry I designed and hand made in my studio in Denver.
