This handmade piece features 12 inches of recycled copper wire hammered, textured, and curved into an open spiral. One spiral is highlighted by a wire-wrapped turquoise-colored howlite stone. Approximately 2.5 inches in diameter, it's flexible enough to stretch out to wear it further up the arm. A great statement piece!
A bit about howlite: Discovered near Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1868 by Henry How, a Canadian chemist, geologist, and mineralogist. It's commonly used to make decorative objects and jewelry. Because it's porous, howlite can be easily dyed to imitate other minerals, in particular turquoise, which has similar veining patterns.
