I've named this one of a kind necklace after the beautiful, unique polymer clay focal bead I bought directly from artist Marcia Palmer of Atlanta, GA. Marcia's "Underground Flower" bead was the inspiration for this piece, which begins with a copper pendant I handcrafted of hammered 16 Ga copper wire in a bold serpentine design at the base and a deliberately asymmetrical twist on top. This truly original pendant dangles from a strand of gemstones that perfectly complement the focal bead in a way I couldn't have planned if I'd tried! They consist of cubes of glossy black onyx and red jasper, and rounds of creamy, delicately veined picture jasper. The only other embellishments on the strand are very simple brass spacers that bring out the metallic gold in Marcia's focal bead. I made a simple hook and eye clasp of copper and black agate to finish off this beauty with a flourish.

The focal bead is two sided and turns freely on the pendant..both sides are shown in the photos. The necklace length is approximately 21 inches, including clasp. The pendant is approximately 4 inches long.

The earrings were made to perfectly complement this pendant. They are handmade of copper with a graceful hammered serpentine motif that matches that of the Asymmetrical Underground Flower pendant. The gemstones are cubes of red jasper and onyx, onyx rondelles, and rounds of picture jasper. As with the necklace, brass heishi beads provide striking accents. Each earring also has one small disk of red polymer clay (custom made for me by Marcia Palmer). The rectangular earwires are handcrafted of copper, also with a serpentine motif as shown in the photos. Earrings dangle approximately 2 inches from the handcrafted copper earwires.

The copper in the pendant, clasp and earrings is untreated and will naturally tarnish to a burnished finish. This will look great with the beads, but the gleaming finish can be restored, if desired, by cleaning in white vinegar.

Like all my jewelry, these earrings will be shipped in a lovely gift box of textured ivory recycled paper and will include a custom tag describing materials and handcrafted elements.
