    Hand twisted copper wire love beads given to me in the mid 1970's with the instruction that they needed to be worn and then passed on to a new loved one. I still have them as I would have never been able to give them away.

      I love this idea - think I will make some of these. Thanks for sharing :-)

      valentino97, I hope you do! I tried to replicate them years ago and the copper wire I had was too shiny to look right. But, the one thing I did learn from it is that the sections keep the necklace from tangling unlike any single bead strand. They are really quite stunning. Truly a delicate and meticulous labor of love.
