Aztec Treasure

A special piece for a special man.
I've been commissioned to join an Aztec calendar medallion with a beautiful multi-beveled quartz. Ancient civilization to ancient earth. I hope I've done them justice... The camera certainly won't.
The challenge - a simple, masculine piece. No glue, no solder, only wire. At first, I thought silver, but oxidized copper is so much more fitting to the ancient theme.
The back side - the beautifully clear quartz allows the reverse side of the medallion to make it's presence known. Lovely from any angle...

Four inches tall from top of bail to point. What a conversation starter!
Patrick, it's ready.
