    This one feels so earthy and natural to me. I’m loving the leather you gals are incorporating into your necklaces. It’s such a great look!

    I going to try to ball end headpins with copper and silver, but only have a butane torch. What type of torch do you use?

    Asia says:

    Angela. I use a regular butane torch from a hardware store for the gauge 18 and higher, for thicker wire I use cheep propane torch, don’t get discouraged it takes a little bit of practice, I never tried silver but apparently is easier to ball it then copper.

    Yes this is very unique for sure. Earthy is right and I love these new styles of jewelry as I’ve said many times. I’m tired of the old classics. A few are OK, but I have too many now. I’d love to have some redone.

    Fantastic Asia.

    Thank you for the info Asia! I’m going to give it a try and my wire is only 18 or higher anyway. Although I do have a propane torch back in storage in AZ.

    I am so in love with the spiral spacers! You should just start selling those too!! Those and your handmade clasps would probably fly out of your shop like hotcakes.
    Also love the necklace, it is just so earthy and cute…grown-up cute.

    Gorgeous design – - envy you the torching ability – - my only torch is a little kitchen one to make Creme Brulee. Perfect use of the owl, too, Asia.
