Sometimes I find myself honed in on something…
could be a technique, a color palette, or a material to work with.
I seem to return again and again to copper.
I know I’ve written many posts about its joys…
malleability, affordability (actually cheap or FREE), and beauty in the variety of patinas.
Plus so many colors look fabulous paired with copper.
Here’s the finished bracelet from the 1/4 inch copper tubing
I put through the rolling mill a couple of weeks ago.
Decided to wrap on a trio of raw amethysts and finish it off as a bangle.
And the copper heart…into this sweet necklace.
Cut some copper sheet into simple rectangles
and gave them the same texturing and heat patina.
Remember the cool s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d copper washers?
Again a simple finish to showcase the copper”s beauty.
