Isis Inspiration - Copper and Rutilated Quartz Necklace

Anyone remember this??

I use to LOVE this show as a kid.

I drew inspiration from the necklace she wore to transform into Isis for this necklace.

This huge faceted rutilated quartz bead has a mystic feel to it. I free hand shaped 14 ga copper wire and hammered it, then used 20 ga copper wire through the bead, anchored it on either side, and did a decorative design with the rest.

I love the texture to the dyed jasper bead. It was not smoothly tumbled, so when dyed, the dye accents the crevasses of the bead and gives it depth.

Simple. Three beads, and chain, takes me back to my childhood, to a time where life was simple and magic was everywhere! Funny how those memories pop back up after years and years :)
