Colourful DIVERSITY Necklace 01
Vibrant Copper DIVERSITY Necklace 01 made with a selection of brightly coloured copper circles linked together by copper wire swirly connections.
This necklaces is another one of those pieces I started making without a concrete plan. I had a selection of enamelled copper circles sitting in a bowl on my workbench. They had been originally enamelled to be made into earrings. Then I thought I had already made lots of earrings in this style so I should have play at making something else.
I started linking them together using 1.25mm gauge copper wire to make a bracelet and it just evolved from there. Half way through the connections bracelet idea was scratched and I just made this lovely triangle linking all the colourful circles together. Stared at it for a bit and decided it should be a necklace and made a chain for it.
When I looked at the connected circles spread out on my workbench it made me think of the Stamford Diversity Festival logo. I was part of this wonderful festival last year and had a great time. That’s why this piece of jewellery has been named the Diversity Necklace. Lots of different colours connected together to make one beautiful piece, in the same way as a diverse bunch of people with different beliefs, backgrounds and abilities come together and do beautiful things together.
Size: Necklace is 19.5 inches long with a copper hook clasp made from 1.25mm pure copper wire. The copper chain on the necklace is made for 1mm pure copper wire. The triangle drop is just over 3 inches. The copper circles are 2 cm.
Colours: Orange, Spring Green, Grass Green, Yellow and Teal. All copper wire has been given an antique patina. Back of the colourful circles is not enamelled.
