Black River - Black Onyx Toodles

Glossy black onyx with a shimmery white river flowing across the side, wrapped in miles of copper wire, oxidized to black velvet in all the depths. Luscious!
No solder, no glue, just wire and pliers and blessings from the muse.

The 30x40mm cab makes the finished piece nearly 2-1/2 x 1-3/4 inches. Large hook bail will fit any size chain or ribbon.
