    Love this.I thought of using copper and silver together, but was unsure it would work.Now I know it really does.I really have to go outside of this box I’m in. You always inspire me. :D

    Ah mixed metals! They do work nicely. I’d love to see a close-up of that pendant. It’s very intriguing the way you have the clasp and extra chain…almost a lariat, but not quite because of the large focal! Very cool.

    Striking and unique. Great input about silver and copper; I’ve been working on a necklace and wondering the same thing.
