Playing with Fire

About this design:

Using my torch and soldering gun to do some other pieces, I had a spare piece of copper and a scrap of brass nearby that caught some drips. So...I put some more solder on there and torched it. The solder flowed and the colors changed. It is very rustic & rough, but something about it made me put it on a leather cord. Made the copper coils and clasp, too.
