About this design:

I have been taking a wire work class, and one thing I've been focusing on is spirals. So far, this was the best one, so I added it to these other beads and to the clasp, which I also made myself. I LOSed it and then buffed it. What do you think?

Components:

copper wire, copper beads, turquoise

    Nice work, I like the textured copper beads. They give real interest to the smooth turquoise beads.
    The entire piece is beautiful.

    Linda, you can never go wrong with turquoise and copper together! I think your wirework is beautiful, and I’d rate that spiral a 10!

    Chicky Bear, LOS is Liver of Sulfur, which ages the copper…and Linda did a wonderful job with it!
