Vintage Copper Rose


About this design:

1st...nothing here is an antique or vintage...that's just the look I was going for. I've seen a lot of jewelry made from old rosaries, old necklaces, brooches & I love that look. So that's what I've tried to achieve with new stuff.

The rose cabochon is set in a cone that I smashed flat & bent the sides up to hold it. Unfortunately 1 broke but you cant really tell.

My jewelry making process is not necessarily organized. I don't really plan ahead. Case in point, Mom's Mother's Day necklace. Got pendant on Wednesday with NO design plan. Made necklace Thursday because beads just happened to match.

Name change.

Components:

Pink Cabochon Rose. Czech: pink sugar cubes, pink topaz round, pressed glass flowers & heart, pink crystal. Pink glass beads. TOHO ceylon innocent pink cubes. Tumbled pink opal, pink freshwater pearl, pink quartz. Copper chain, spacers, rondells, bead caps, jump rings, eye pins.

    Deb, your design style has a name: “Wing it” :) It takes a special kind of artist to put such gorgeous pieces together on the fly! I love this and all your other pieces! :)
