    The rustic feel of this necklace is great. The beads are so interesting! Your coiled copper bead caps look great with the neutral colors & different shapes of the beads. :)

    Love the chunky look! Your handmade coiled bead caps are wonderful. I may borrow that idea. So far the coils are the limit on my wirework.
