Green Heart of Envy Necklace

I just finished my first necklace using one of my own hand-painted porcelain pendants, and I decided to call it the "Green Heart of Envy." Something about the green and copper color combination went really well with my big turquoise beads and copper wire, and copper pipe from the hardware store...
Here's the finished necklace. Took me all day to make it, but I love it. It's very fulfilling to design a necklace around beads that you've made yourself. In the past, I've always purchased gorgeous beads made by other artists and used them in my wire-art jewelry designs. Now I have my own handmade pendants to work with, and I find that deeply satisfying.
Happy wrapping,
Sharilyn
