About this design:

I'm trying to figure out what to do with this copper piece. I'm thinking about hanging it from a rectangular piece of metal that has some words stamped on it. But what word/words could I stamp?????? Or, if I don't do that, what are some other ideas? I need to figure it out soon cause I have a craft show on Saturday!!! Thanks so much!


copper, wire

    How about “REMEMBER” ( you know like when you tie a knot on your finger..)?

    OK. This may sound wacky but…..
    The wire wrapped bundle in the middle sort of reminds me of a freeform butterfly. What if you hung at the tip so that the pendant is a diamond shape. Then punch one more hole on the other tip so that you could hang some sort of dangles from the two holes on the side. Maybe some little Tierra Cast butterflies or whatever you like? The pendant could be hung from a chain, leather cord, funky ribbon etc……….

    I also like NY Bella’s suggestion!

    Nicole, I love the piece just as it is !!!
    I see you have a hole in the piece already, I would just hang it from
    a chain… sweet and simple… but amazing !!!!!

    I also love this piece just as it is, Nicole! I do like Mary’s idea, as this also reminded me of a butterfly. Great minds….. 8)

    If you want to continue with the butterfly theme how about the words/word “Be Free” or “Freedom?” However, it really is neat just as it is.

    What about – Forever (as in it will take forever to figure out that bundle of strings of your life)

    Nicole, you have so many options here! I love all the suggestions above. I also came up with “Present and Accounted For” (always good at company meetings!), or how about “Gifted” (You see how warped my mind can be…)

    Thanks everyone for all the ideas! I’m kinda liking just hanging it from a chain like Purple Chick suggested, and then maybe adding a few beads. Will have to think about it! :)

    I think it would be awesome as a bracelet with the word ‘tangled’ or ‘complicated’ or even ‘wrapped’. Although it’s gorgeous without words and words may take away from the great job!

    You know what? When I saw this I thought of a sun catcher of sorts. Maybe hang with crystals not to take away from the color and along with some random copper to carry through the main piece? Just what I saw, but then I see a lot of things in everything everywhere. OH, and it’s gorgeous.

Add your thoughts!
