It's a Chain Thing

About this design:

I'm just about out of sheet copper. I wanted to make something using this small piece and see if I could make a very eye catching design. Initially it looked a bit plain so I added the chain. Think it will be noticed?

    Thanks, Betty, obviously I do love copper. Last week I did some work with silver filled wire and it isn’t nearly as easy as working with copper of the same gauge.

    Thanks for the compliments and comments Everyone. I’m glad you like my “Dazzler.” I had one heck of a time getting the light in the right place. My camera isn’t too high tech so it has problems taking a light reading off of a Shiny Object. :D

    So nice and shiny! Yep, never toss the scraps. Perfect, doesn’t need anything else but a pretty neck to show it off.
