I had a creative block, and my niece told me she saw a necklace once that she loved that was branches with little red beads. This gave something to ponder and figure out how to make, and this is what I got. She will receive this as a gift for spurring me on. The entire piece is made of layers of 24g copper and brass wires twisted to form a rope, then strung adding the beads. It took multiple layers (5) to get it to the thickness I wanted. It is a statement piece that she can handle.
Techniques: wire twist
