Pink Punk

About this design:

Mixing beading and metal work. The copper is rolled in a metal crimper, given a little patina and polish. Wire wrapped some keshi pearls to it, and strung additional pearls with clear rounds. Magnetic clasp and crystal dangle.

    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!!!
