About this design:

As I was hammering out a piece of copper colored aluminum wire for a class demonstration, I thought "wonder what that would look like with some new color and as a spikey necklace?" So here is what it looks like!


copper wire, copper beads, leather lacing

    Oh my gosh. After posting this I scrolled thru designs & realized Nancy posted her gorgeous copper pendant earlier. See, now I like it better without the color & beads. Maybe a re-do!

    Thanks Betty & Nancy! LRC Nancy’s designs are elegant, they make a statement in a simple & stunning way. I am inspired by her work, and I like adding color…so I guess they are different enough! ;) (it just felt weird to me I guess!)
