I made this necklace the other day when I had an overwhelming desire to bend some wire. It was a lot of fun, and took forever to make! It's made out of 16 gauge silver colored copper wire and fire polished glass beads. If I ever get my hands on (or can afford) enough sterling silver wire, I'll use this necklace as a prototype to make another one. But in the meantime, I'll have fun wearing this one.
