Double Hexagon Necklace
This hexagon necklace is a mixture of two of my favorite necklaces, the Open Copper Hexagon and the Solid Hexagon Necklace. It features a copper hexagon made from electrical wire and a brass hexagon in the middle.
Here is a little about the process: I used disguarded electrical wire to form a hexagon by hand and I soldered the joint. I soldered a jumpring onto it that would later hold the whole thing together. The inner hexagon started its life as a drum cymbal. After it took on many cracks and its sound changed, the drummer sold it to me. Here's the fun part. I heated it until it was rosey to soften the metal. After it cooled, I cut a small part off and trimmed it into a hexagon, and pounded it flat. And then I punched a hole and filed away the sharp edges, ending with a really good cleaning and polish. I then connected both hexagons together. Then I made a dainty s clasp and more jump rings and attached a small oxidized copper orbit chain and ended it with a triangle to bring it all together.
It is approximately 22 inches. The hexagons measures approx 1 inch by 1 inch.

Due to the recycled nature of this metal, it may be slightly distressed looking. All of my items are almost completely handmade. There may be scratches or marks in the metal, or something may not line up exactly perfect. These imperfections are not to be seen as defects, but unique qualities of using recycled or reclaimed metals and buying handmade.
