Recycle That Wire!

A few years ago, I got my hands on recycled copper wire....
purchased by the pound.
I've slowly been working my way though the stash and just finished the most recent reappropriation project.
I love that I can cut sections of this recycled material and make something like.....
this necklace.
I cut a variety of lengths which were then soldered and shaped to make a collection of rings.
The rings are joined with links that I made with 16 gauge wire.
All pieces were hammered to make the metal work hardened and to add surface texture.

Small bits of color were added with wire wrapped, faceted beads of aventurine.
