    ooooooooh, I LOVE this! The richness and warmth of the pearls and copper is gorgeous! I used to be a silver-only girl (in part because my wedding ring is platinum and I was always too “A-R” to mix metals- how silly!), but I’m really starting to love copper. When I make something with it or see beautiful pieces like this I think, “Copper- where have you been all my life?” :)
