Collar of Isis by TEMPERATE-SAGE Collar of Isis by TEMPERATE-SAGE
This necklace probably took 60 hours of preparation and creation time.

It is made from glass beads and recycled brass wire. It probably has several hundred loops on it (I never counted).

This piece is for sale (yes you can buy my art): [link]

I love the look, but wouldn't it be very fragile being made with such thin brass wire? How would a person keep it from tarnishing to a black before long. I work with a lot of copper in my business, and brass is just a cheap form of copper: 70% copper and 30% zinc. I imagine you could get gold plated wire, if not real solid gold wire to make this a good piece, given all the labor involved.

They do very slowly tarnish with time but it has never deteriorated the look of the pieces, only changed it slightly. The great thing about the brass wire is it can hold up its shape under pounds of pressure and not loss its chain form due to its stiff nature (my brass has a little steel mixed in). I actually don't think the thin wire look would work with many other metal mixes, because many others bend easy under pressure (I can attest to the stiffness of the wire, had it flip out of my grasp several times and go through my finger) XP . I actually have a wire chainmaille dress (that needs to be shot still) that tests the limits of this wire, I have found that if I do several loops to several loops though I can keep the frame of the dresses integrity fairly well intact. Sometimes it is a matter of choosing materials that weigh less (but thats when I get to using fabrics on the wire).

Thank you, sorry, I don't it is just one of those things where I start putting loops of wire together and see where it takes me. =)

They do take a lot of time but that is because I am working with recycled materials which means I have to prep the materials for construction. I had to coil the each piece of wire twice and that is after I got done cutting all of the lengths.

Thank you =)
