Neck ring

This neck ring was made using twisted wires. Three double twisted strands were twisted together and intertwined with a smaller double twist of wires. The ends were then welded together and flattened. The flattened ends were decorated with triangles and a dot. One end has a hook which fits into an eye in the other end for fastening.
