Brass and Bead Necklace

This is inspired by Beverly Ash-Gilbert.  I took a workshop with her a couple of years ago and have made a few pieces.   The two brass pieces are riveted together with copper wire and the wire armature which secures the seed beads is hidden between the two sheets.  It's finicky but very effective.  The brass is 24g and the wire used in the chain is 18g.  The entire piece has had a layer of Renaissance Wax applied to it.

This is impressive. Love the blue beads. Like the larger chain with the pendant.
