Modern Primitive

Just finished a piece for the new line.
I love the roughness of the chain, the obvious marks left by the hammer on the links, the imperfect wire wrapped pendant against the pristine turquoise cabochon.
I wanted this piece to look like it had been made in a mad max world contrasting against the cool smooth perfection of the stones glossy surface and the vivid blues and ochre of the turquoise.
I know I know, some feel it's a sin to use copper with turquoise lol ;) , I hear ya. But I love the way the fiery orange roseyness of copper plays against the intense blues in the turquoise.
I will be using silver after I purchase more supplies.
