Rustic Jewellery: Turquoise and Copper Necklace
One-Off Handcrafted turquoise and copper necklace incorporating Fold Forming, texturing and wire work techniques.
Tiny Turquoise beads hang from the main metal pendant and have also been wrapped in copper wire on the necklace chain.
The necklace has been given a Liver of Sulphur antique patina.
I have named this necklace Ladakh because it reminds me so much of the beautiful colourful jewellery worn by Ladakhi women. I travelled in that region many, many years ago and the jewellery really fascinated me. The markets in Leh were always full of lovely metal jewellery with lots of turquoise and have several necklaces from Ladakh with turquoise and other colourful beads.
Size: Approximately 20 inches. It can be made longer.
