|Jasper wrapped in copper-plated brass wire|
I kinda cheated with the longer connections by wrapping a simple ring on either side of the collections and connecting them with pre-made chain links. Hey, it's practice!
Several collections were put together here for an over-long belly chain. Smoky Quartz drop flanked by Quartz and Aventurine, Amazonite tube flanked by Aventurine and Obsidian, Amethyst teardrop flanked by Tourmalinated Quartz and Obsidian, and Tiger Eye tube flanked by Quartz and Obsidian. All wrappings for this one were made with gold-plated brass and linked together by pre-made recycled aluminum chain links.
