    I used to have a hair crimper that did that same design. Bet it wouldn’t work on metal.

    Deb H., no, not a hair crimper! :D

    It is a hand-held kind of ‘rolling mill’ thing I found at Michaels. It’s kind of musical, too, when you roll the metal thru it makes a ‘ping-ping’ sound!

    Thanks everyone for the nice words! (Becky, you crack me up with the eyeballs comment!)

    Totally inspired, Cindy ! Never would have thought of wrapping the keishi on the copper in the “opposite” direction. This is definitely both pink and punk !

    I love this… I don’t like pink, but I will give it up for this piece! The crimper and the contrast in textures is FAB!!!
