Minimalist Industrial Style Unisex Circle Pendant Necklace Copper and Leather
There are two ways to be rich: One is by acquiring much, and the other is by desiring little. (Jackie French Koller)
The Story of This Jewelry: I wanted to combine my love for minimalism with my desire to create unisex, industrial style pieces. The symbolic meaning of the circle speaks to different people in different ways. To some it represents wholeness, the self, and eternity; to others it speaks to the cyclic movement of the universe, time, and our lives.
I felt this piece (and it's silver counterpart) had to have substantial enough weight to intimate a sense of being grounded. So I started with a very heavy gauge copper. After forming the circle, I polished it then oxidized it for the final look I was after.
The 1½ inch diameter circle is on a thin leather cord with a small sterling silver clasp. You can choose 16 or 18 inches for the necklace length.
I hope you enjoy wearing this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it.
