More Malachite

About this design:

The frame for this piece was one I had made many months ago. Every thing I had tried for a focal just didn't look right.

Then I brought home the bag of malachite. When I tried one of the beads for size I found that one of the largest was a perfect size.

I made a few changes in the loop, added some more wrapping with the fine wire and this is the results..


Malachite, 12 and 24 gauge copper wire
