Wire Wrapped Black Agate Musical Note Pendant. Measures 4cm in length and paired with a black waxed cord necklace.
Created with two Black Agate coin beads and wrapped by hand using bare copper artistic wire. This design was based on a tutorial designed by Nicole Hanna Jewelry. This piece was then antiqued (using a liver of sulphur solution), and it will further patina and darken over time. There are ways to bring out the brighter copper tones. I find a brass wire brush a good way to brighten up copper, but there are other methods. I include a small polish cloth with all of my bare wire items, and ship in an airtight bag to prolong oxidisation for longer.
Each order is packaged gift-ready in letter box friendly sized boxes for you to send directly as a gift. If you would like a free personalised note included, please add this at checkout. I never include a receipt with my deliveries.
Besides its natural beauty and ability to oxidise and transform, 100% of copper can be recycled without any loss of its original mined quality. Over 80% of the copper mined since it was discovered thousands of years ago is still in use today.
Those who happen to be deficient in copper may benefit from wearing it in jewellery form, such as necklaces, rings and bracelets. It is a good way of taking in the small amount of the mineral needed, without overwhelming the body. The healing properties of copper has been reported by some to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and circulation problems.
In the UK, copper is traditionally associated with the ninth year of marriage (7th in the USA), its beauty and malleability symbolising the way a married couple can bend to accommodate each other after nine long years.
