Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the  Sun in our Solar System. Named for the Roman God of the sea, it is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the third-largest by mass. Neptune is 17 times the mass of Earth and is slightly more massive than its near-twin Uranus, which is 15 Earth masses and not as dense.
      A dear friend sent a lovely strand of large Angelite beads for Christmas. As soon as I saw them they reminded me of a picture of planet Neptune.  I decided to make a bold necklace to go with these bold beads. I shaped and hammered 12 Gauge wire in to pattern of circle segments and then wired them together into a chevron style. An additional coiled wire dangle was connected to add movement.  I used a home made recipe to oxidize the copper wire to a dark blue color which compliments the beads nicely. I wired the beads with black oxidized steel wire to match the antique look. Leather cord was attach to the necklace with hand made black wire clasps.
