To create this necklace, I first formed a leaf shape from copper wire, and then hammered it to work-harden it and add texture. I then added alternating turquoise and copper beads on the middle "stem," twisting wire around the center and the frame after each bead to create the leaf's veins. I created a patterned copper circle to join the leaf and the chain, and finished the necklace with a handmade clasp. I oxidized the copper and polished it to bring out the details in the wire-wrapping. The chain is 26", and the pendant plus hoop is 5".
