Tribal copper wire necklace in various techniques

This is a necklace inspired by tribal art.It took me long hours to make it. The central piece of the necklace is a tubular bead weave, which I made for the first time. At first I thought I’ll never make it since I find the beginning of the work extremely confusing, but once you get it, it goes smoothly. As for the pendant, I tried to weave a cotton thread around the copper wire frame – it was fun:)! And the two curly pieces on each side of the central decoration, I think the technique is wire coiling – I didn’t follow any tutorial, I was guessing…but love the way they came out:). As for the materials I used glass seed beads, jade beads, tiny delica beads, oxidized copper wire and cotton threads.
