jewelry: lapis lazuli cursive loops necklace

This piece is my most ambitious so far, as I wanted something special to showcase the real lapis beads I got as a Christmas present.

The loops get their shape from something called memory wire.  Complete pain in the neck to use, but holds its shape very well.  I also used copper lined glass beads and wrapped it in copper wire for accents.  The necklace itself is strung on very strong copper stringing wire.  I hope to get some good pictures of it on a beautiful redheaded friend of mine before listing it on Etsy. :)
