Being an optimist or just plain stubborn,
I keep trying to make copper ball head pins at home with my micro torch…
even though I keep reading that it doesn’t get hot enough.
So after torching a length of wire repeated times and getting dismal results,
I finally gave up, but kept looking at this wonderfully heat patinated copper wire.
So I decided to use it to loosely wrap a stamped and painted poly clay pendant I made.
Looking kinda neat.
Then I finished the necklace off with waxed Irish linen cord
and embellished with knots of my favorite seed beads and a few Howlite barrel beads.
