Details

Handmade open front choker collar, also known as a torc necklace, copper wire wrapped with glass copper leaves and hand blown glass butterflies.

This one of a kind necklace is a perfect and elegant way to celebrate the beauty of spring! Pink and blue glass butterflies flutter through copper colored glass leaves and hand shaped copper spirals.
The necklace has an open front, resting on the back of the neck, made with flexible natural copper wire for an incredibly comfortable feel.

Originally, torc (also spelled torq or torque) necklaces were made from very rigid metals, were very heavy and meant for almost permanent wear. Popular among the Celts, most depictions of gods and goddesses in Celtic mythology show them wearing torc necklaces.

Today's torc necklaces are much more wearer friendly, like this stunning statement necklace. The copper wire can be shaped to fit how you like, and it has been given a non tarnish, clear enamel coating, so it will keep it's rich, warm color, and will not cause problems for people with metal sensitivities.

While the construction of this necklace is quite sturdy, please keep in mind that the pretty little butterflies are handmade glass, and are breakable, please handle them with care!
