    They are refreshing. The copper enhance the bead. I know this off subject but could someone tell me how to attach those feathers to componets. All this stuff is new to me, it sooths my mind. Thats a good thing:)

    Thanks!!!!!! I’m not exactly sure as I’ve never done it, but there are like little metal things that LB offers where (I think) you use glue like epoxy to glue the feather(s) into a little metal thing with a loop!!! Hope that helps!?!?!? :)

    Great Design Little Chick!
    You’re certainly on a roll!

    C henson; there is a tutorial for feathers in the ‘tips & techniques’ section here at Lima!
    Check it out! I think it will answer your question. :-)

    These are great, Nicole! Love the patina on the copper, and your wrap on the lampwork (?) bead!

    Thanks girls!!! Chickie Sue: I’m not sure if it’s a lampwork bead or not…it looks like one though!
