Playing with Copper
I should have gone to bed early, but I was too excited about playing with the new wire I bought yesterday. So here's what I created tonight: a pair of 18 gauge copper wire flower earrings. I made the earrings, the jump rings and the earring wire. I was a little worried about making the jump rings--it's hard to make perfect circles, even using a mandrel--but I think I did pretty well. I made two pairs of these, just because I liked them so much! I can't wait to try wrapping pendants, or maybe doing a focal piece out of copper. Will post more pics when I do!
