There was ample opportunity to practice with the jeweler's saw while making this necklace. I drilled a hole in the center of each flower, and threaded the coiled and hammered wire 'tendrils' through. I also handmade the copper clasp.
The individual flowers were also textured, using various hammers and surfaces to impress a relief into the metal surface. And I also patinated the metal, using a variety of techniques.
It turned out pretty well for a first effort with sawing metal and fabrication. The patinas on the copper flowers turned them a lovely shade of blue. To protect the patina, I used a light coating of carnuba wax.
