Sterling Silver Egyptian Coil Necklace





This necklace is made using an ancient technique which required approximately 40 feet of hand coiled sterling silver wire to achieve a total length that is adjustable between 15 ½” (40cm) and 17" (44 1/2cm.) It has been oxidized to create that wonderful aged patina, and it is so sensual and luxurious yet can be paired with anything from your favortie jeans to your little black dress.

-This piece measures a little over ½” (1 1/2cm) wide.

Absolutely beautiful! I'm making the jump from just beading into wire work--that necklace is impressive!

I have to say that is one of the most beautiful Egyptian coils I've ever seen. So very well made! I've never seen one snake so well.
