More Steel Work

About this design:

Still exploring this material and enjoying mixing soft, richly colored silk and crystals with the hard, rustic metal. The red crystal links will probably end up in earrings, with more crystal dangles.

    Love both of these steel pieces. The second one would be good as earrings, but at first I thought they were hair barrettes.

    The red beads are perfect with the steel wire. Exploring the possibilities of the steel wire should keep you busy for a long time. Love all of your steel designs. :)

    Thanks, ladies! Yes, the silk and steel are going to keep me busy for quite a while…all 40 yards of silk and 50 feet of wire. Just got a package in the mail with two more spools in different gauges. I’m currently trying to get accurate info about soldering steel. If anyone knows of a lead, I’d be most appreciative!
