The Pond Koi Lotus Necklace by popnicute The Pond Koi Lotus Necklace by popnicute
A client wanted me to make her a larger than life necklace for her to wear. Koi fish to represent her twin boys and a lotus flower to represent her baby girl. So This is what I came up with. It's huge but still in comfortable enough weight to wear and lay well on the chest as the chain links help each part to move freely. Natural Amber is the focal stone as well as the beads. I've been working on this for months now and I'm glad that it's done :woohoo:

The pieces are cut like puzzles handmade from copper and brass, in sheet and wire form. Sawn and filed to fit. A total precision job. A brain twister fo' sure :faint:

Lots of obstacles and frustration to overcome but I'm satisfied with the result especially since I'm pretty dang new at soldering <-- read my blog for unpublished sketch and photos.

As always,
:star: facebook is full of eye candies.
:star: Popnicute.com is for shopping.
