Penny Copper And Gold Necklace
If you’ve ever held a copper penny in your hands, a new one with just a bit of wear, and maybe a couple of nicks and dark shading from handling, you can visualize the true color of the large beads in this necklace. The color of these big pillow beads doesn’t translate accurately via camera. At least, not mine. If you follow my website you already know I’m addicted to copper but I would not have suspected I would ever like the combination of copper and gold. When I found these spacer beads at Michael's store, I just knew they deserved a project on my site. This is a simple bead stringing project with a clasp secured to the wire with crimp beads. Clear glass copper lined beads separate the copper and gold spacers resulting in colors and textures that blend into one big happy, gorgeous necklace.
step 1 - Cut the beading wire to measure 25”.
step 6 - Add nine spacer beads as you did in step two, alternating gold and copper with each spacer separated by a copper lined bead.
step 7 - Finishing by adding 26 copper lined beads to the wire.
