African Spring

About this design:

Since finding and joining this site, I have been super delighted to see designs by others, and have been inspired by a lot of you who do wirework, which I have not been interested in because I wasn't good at it. I did wire-wrap this pendant and was pleased with the result.


African Rainbow Agate, Poppy Jasper, Copper

    Thank you, everyone. Maybe I should have called this one African Autumn! The suns and the copper flower reminded me of spring, but you’re right, the stones are definitely autumn colors.
