Copper and Jasper Pendant


About this design:

I saw a pendant similar to this one on line last week. The technique looked very interesting so I thought I'd give it a try but put my own twist on it. Don't remember where I saw it...Don't remember the name of the artist or I would give her credit for the inspiration.

Components:

copper wire, chrysocolla jasper

    You are all so generous with your compliments. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Lynn, the frame of this piece is 14ga and the beads are strung on 24ga. I thought about using 16ga but it just isn’t heavy enough to make a sturdy frame. :D

    Thanks again for all of the nice comments everyone. It is fun to experiment and great when all of you enjoy it, too. :D

    Now about a step-by-step….. I’m not sure if I could do it again….. I’ll give it a whirl and see how it turns out. If I post instructions you will know that I figured it out. If you never hear another word about it you will know I wound up with a miserable failure. :D
