    Gorgeous! I love your copper work! I, too, keep being drawn to copper, even though silver is my favorite metal- I have much more range in wire sizes right now with copper. =^___^= Keep it up, these are amazing!

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Beadling…I didn’t think I had any metal skills either,..I just brought some home and started playing with it. Believe me, I’ve thrown plenty in the trash…

    I have attempted some wire pieces before with very little success. I’d love to incorporate some metal into my bead-weaving at some point, even if its just focals.

    Love them. I especially love Patricia Healey’s pieces. You are on your way. Great work. I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Best wishes on future endeavors.
