Just a Leaf

About this design:

A scrap of copper and a torch...what more could you want or need? I'm still working on getting a more consistent color with out scorching the metal. The god of chance really smiled on me this time. I've NEVER had color so rich and gorgeous. Even though I have no idea what to do with it I'll just keep it around to look at. Maybe I could frame it....?

    Nancy!! This is beautiful! I love the color and textures you created, it really reminds me of Patricia Healey’s copper designs. It would make a gorgeous pendant!

    Was it difficult to do? I’d love to learn how!

    I would put a hole in the stem part and use it as a pendant like the others mentioned. It’s really cool!

    try baking your copper in the oven. I know that different temperatures makes copper change colors. Start at 150 to 500 degrees.
