Dixie’s Inspired Egyptian Coil Necklace

Created by Dixie Ann Scott

I love when readers share their creations with us! A short while ago, Dixie Ann Scott sent us a photo of an Egyptian Coil Necklace that she created, which was similar to one we featured in one of our earlier  blog posts about the history of the Jig and Egyptian Jewelry.

Here’s what Dixie told me about creating her inspired Egyptian Coil Necklace:

“Mine is just a single row but I also did my first torch fire on it to give it a beautiful patina.

This was my first attempt at an all wire necklace. Other than using a round nose pliers, flat nose pliers and a small torch, my hands, grit and determination were all the tools I used.

I had never torch fired any wire before either so after practicing a little on some individual spirals and watching a video, I dove right in and was so pleased when it turned out with such a beautiful patina. I eventually made a bracelet to match and was commissioned to make other sets.

I did switch to a 14 gauge dead soft copper wire later not only to make the necklace a little lighter in weight but also to save on my hands. Hope you like it!”
