Copper Wire Wrapped Yoke Necklace, Rose Quartz, Rhodonite, Pink Opal, Gypsy Bohemian Vintage Style


Antiqued copper wire work necklace has a cluster of earthy pink natural stones decorating a vintage-inspired yoke.

Details at a glance:

  • Rhodonite, Peruvian pink opal, and rose quartz natural stones
  • Pure copper wire work and chain
  • Necklace has vintage-aesthetic yoke front style
  • Finished to 18-inches long
  • Center stone cluster adds 1 3/8-inches 

Pink semiprecious stones reveal their earthy personalities when paired with rich dark brown copper wire work. Rhodonite, Peruvian pink opal, and rose quartz stone beads in various shapes and finishes decorate the hand worked wire yoke of this necklace. The pink opals represent the sweetest pink - like cotton candy and milk glass - rhodonite the dirtiest. Pale and translucent rose quartz takes on the earthy role chameleon-like from reflecting and transmitting the surrounding dark copper and other stones. There is a pendant cluster of stones in the center including two opal rondels, two rose quartz cubes, a rose quartz faceted round, a rose quartz tumbled stone, and a dark rose colored rhodonite round. This cluster hangs down 1 3/8-inches from the yoke. At either side of the cluster dangle an opal and then a rhodonite cube.

The yoke front is worked from 18 gauge copper wire. It has a graceful dipping curve and sweet flourishes at each end in a vintage aesthetic. The yoke is joined to solid copper link chain in a delicate cable style. The hook and eye closure is also handcrafted from pure copper. I used fine gauge copper wire to wrap the the yoke and to wire the gemstone dangles and the cluster pendant to it. All of the copper has been polished, antiqued, polished again, and waxed to bring out some bright copper highlights and deep shine.

The necklace as-built is 18-inches long. It is designed to be worn on an open neckline to show off the wire shape and the pale stones. Please consider the necklace length before ordering. I can shorten it at no charge if requested.
