Coral and Copper!

About this design:

This was once a necklace I made my sister years ago,it was too short for her so she did'nt wear it.I took it apart and restrung it.Last time it was combined with silver. This time I decided to use the copper. I added apatchie tears and other glass beads.


20 gauge square wire and apatchie and glass beads.16 gauge wire for the clasp.

    Really nice combination of shapes and colors. Would not have thought of copper with the red but it really works.

    Love all the wire details, they are all so exquisite! And the black rondelles — I have some in onyx, and haven’t figured how to use them — these are just in the right place, very cool!
