All of the copper components in this necklace look so lovely together. I like how the beaded strand flows effortlessly into the chain sections. It's a great style for autumn!
Vintaj creates beautiful Artisan Copper components that create a rich look in jewelry designs. Artisan Copper is hand-finished solid copper, so every piece has its own unique hue and luminous quality. Cheri used several Artisan Copper pieces together in this necklace. Find more inspiration for using Vintaj components in your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown
below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from
the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up
the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color
scheme—it’s up to you!
