    These are all truly amazing work! I’m partial to the garnet one–I love the rich color against the copper and especially those heart dangles. Great job! You must go through a lot of copper wire! I must try my hand at this one. How cool are these to reflect all the sunlight this time of the year?! :)

    Love them all. The heart garnet is awesome for a gift and I’m sure your sister in law will love. Glad you posted a photo in natural night, cause the darker pic does not do it justice.

    The sun witch rocks! It would look perfect in my entryway. Is it for sale? Is the copper protected? meaning so it won’t change color

    Thank so much. I do love to make jewelry but really enjoy sculpting with the wire. I find that its very rewarding. This Sun Witch along with another one I made earlier is for sale in our local bead shop.Peggy, I get most of my wire from Rona or Home Hardware, and I do go through a lot of it!!!!!
