Amy Hanna inspired necklace
I loved my class I took with Amy Hanna at the Art Nest. I've been trying to incorporate more found objects and wire wrapping into pieces and I had the perfect opportunity for my friend Suzanne's b-day. I made this piece with existing chain and then I had chained the string with vintage german crystal beads (very cranky to work with beads). This was also the first time I used annealed steel and it looks great (I think) but it definitely puts up a fight! The charm on the back of the piece is a religious charm and I love the image and color on the otherwise dark piece. I was really happy with the results on this one and have big plans for earrings this weekend!
