Wow, two blog hops in one week!

 This one today is the other regular challenge that I told myself I’d commit to this year

and I’m so very glad I have.

Love My Art Jewelry offers everyone a boot camp about every two months.

The first one was making and using ball head pins.

Hand texturing metal was the second boot camp topic.

The current one was all about working with wire.

And I love adding wire work to my jewelry…nothing too intricate, mind you.

If you are a regular visitor to my blog you no doubt know about my love of copper.

Copper wire is so lovely to work with. And cheap!!

I use copper first on most new designs when I need to work out the details.

For this blog hop I posting photos of some new and some old pieces I’ve done.

( of course, click on the images to enlarge)

And the newest work finished up today…

in one of my absolutely favorite color palettes of browns and turquoise.

    What a great post full of beautiful wire jewelry! I agree, copper is great to work with – so affordable and very malleable. Perfect to create shapes. Your designs are really inspirational – hard to pick a favorite, but I might have to say the flower necklace. I love that very same color palette! 😉
