Vibration collection ~ Double strand tourque necklace with amethyst and black onyx
Double strand tourque necklace with amethyst and black onyx.
The two strands are made of macrame and weaved leather.
Macrame is a weaving technique that involves the use of cord, often waxed, to wrap stones without the use of glue. This is beneficial for who believes in the amazing properties of crystals, as chemicals are thought to interfere negatively with them.
The stone used are amethyst and black onyx and all the metal parts are made of solid brass so water safe.
For the weaved fibre part I've used Linhasita cord, a high quality waxed cord used for shoe making and leather work. This ensures a very long durability of your handmade piece.
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. Some people like the patina of tarnished brass and the tarnish is actually a protective layer for the brass. However the shine can be restored with a polishing cloth, steel wool or many household products.
