Reclaimed Copper Scrollwork Necklace

Reclaimed Copper Scrollwork Necklace

There are 56 hand forged scroll links in this necklace. I made each link by taking a medium weight reclaimed copper wire and hammering, rolling and shaping each piece into interlocking links that resemble the tops of Greek Ionic columns.
