The Perfect Gift Necklace

Fresh from the bench! Available exclusively at Popnicute.com :star:

This is the first time I've worked with super flattened argentium wire. It's sooo tricky to get this thing done, to look as good as the copper does. Copper is way easier. I didn't quenched my AS wire, instead i left it air cooling. Since one of the attributes of AS wire is heat hardened, the result isn't that malleable and springy. My fingers hurt trying to make the wire stay put. I was afraid to quench because I've read somewhere that it would make AS wire brittle (true or myth?).

But i'm liking both results. :) Wouldn't this make a memorable gift? :D


Materials:
• Argentium silver wire
• Copper wire
• Sterling silver chain
• Chalcedony beads

It may have been more difficult than working with copper, but the result looks really great... especially the curling ribbon effect. :)
