Wired Pieces

About this design:

Inspired by all the copper and brass designs here, in particular Little Round Chick's Wire Designs pendants. I'm always game to experiment with new materials to see what happens. Thanks again to everyone here for the great inspirations and tips!

I used brass and copper wire for the earrings and pendants, then added Czech glass beads and/or freshwater pearls.


Brass wire (20 gauge), copper wire (18 gauge), Czech glass beads, fresh water pearls (earrings)
