Intro: Copper Necklace
This necklace is titled "Connected" and was created in 2008 with copper, nickel, guitar wire, glass. Its dimensions are 9” w x 5” h x 1/2” d. Each copper piece was made from an etched or hand stamped sheet of 18 gauge copper, which was hydraulically pressed into a acrylic mold/form and then cut, soldered with a backing, and oxidized. The center copper "on" button is set with a custom created glass piece. It is strung on a guitar wire and connected to a nickel 18 gauge wire.
