penny lane


About this design:

The first time I used these brushed copper rectangles (for "moondance"), I paired them with silvery disks for a modern, "space odyssey" feel. This time, I've brought things down to earth, with some mottled brown-and-gold bronzite. What do you think?

Components:

Bronzite squares, brushed copper rectangles, copper spacers, LB copper clasp

    This is lovely Susan. Bronzite is one of my favorite stones, I love the richness of it, and it goes perfectly with the brushed copper.

    Great together, I love Bronzite. I like them both, but still think I like the first one, only because I like the squished golf balls.

    I’m going to change the title of this one. I like “Penny Lane” better. :)
