    LOL Thanks, Donna! I think those pendants are pretty cool. I’m just now starting to appreciate copper in jewelry.

    Copper is getting as expensive as gold, isn’t it? Good grief..I’ve also started using more copper. I just want to make sure if it the bright copper that it doesn’t turn. Any suggestions on a protector that can be sprayed on?

  6. Cuban Queen Crazy Chick
    Cuban Queen Crazy Chick says:

    Good question. I have that problem when using base metals, I hate it when they start turning. I’m guessing any kind of clear spray varnish would work. Not sure, though.

    I am starting to use a lot of copper as well doing etchings on base metals. My bead store recommended using Sally Henson’s clear nailpolish to prevent turning. It’s the one in the silver bottle- I think its called Diamond strong or something along those lines. I have not tried a spray but I’ve heard clear acrylic spray paint would work- I’ve not tested it out though. You can bring copper to a shine with steel wool and then paint on the acrylic nailpolish. Just be careful not to have a fan on- I learned the hard way on that one!

    Great colors in this pick….the copper really works w/the green. :-)
    Is this a good time to tell you that I have a baby lizard loose in my studio? My husband came in and told me one got in the back door last night. I know I will freak out if I feel something crawl across my foot. :P

    Great pick!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve got lizards all over the place, too, Harriet. Not baby ones, though. Mostly outside, though.

    Hey, I happen to really like the patina copper takes on as it ages.

    Beautiful color combo, Ivy! :D

    I also love the patina copper takes on as it ages! If you want it to stay shiny, though, either buy coated or coat it with clear nail polish or spray acrylic. I’ve had success with both. :D

    Thank you all for the comments, chicks! :D

    Cathy, turns out we’ll have to save our play date for another time, as I’m picking up my babies tomorrow and won’t be back until nighttime. Maybe sometime in August. I wish you lived closer, too! :(
