Copper Filigree Snowflake Necklace - Sea Snow

Sea Snow by Sarah McTernen
Copper Filigree Snowflake Necklace - Sea Snow
I am not sure that I am happy with the name.  The filigree snow flake paired with the aquamarine and sea ice like prehnite led me in that direction.  It doesn't capture the romantic elegance that I see in this piece. 
The snowflake is made of a copper wire frame with six diamond shaped ends and a nested wire center.  Curly Q spirals are then wire wrapped to the frame, two to a prong, with the bottom spirals wire wrapped to the adjoining prong.  The whole pendant measures almost 4" and when you include the cagay pod stem, the pendant drop is nearly 5 1/2". 

A small bib of aquamarine drops on copper chain adds a delicate nature to this statement necklace.  The chain is made of rough prehnite nuggets, dark brown wood rounds, faceted copper cubes and two cagay pod slices beaded with wood rounds and copper cubes.  This necklace is 18" around the neck and closes with a copper hook clasp for easy, yet secure, on and off.

What do you think of the design?

Thanks for reading,

Sarah McTernen
