    Another beauty. Love the turquoise with the silver and with the copper wire. I wouldn’t have thought of a praying mantis if you hadn’t told me. Ha. Love the pretty loops on the front and the back.

    Breathtaking! The copper look just like it is part of the stone. You are doing a great job with your wirework.

    Nice design even if it does look like a praying mantis head. Beautiful stone with gorgeous color and it looks great with copper.

    It’s amazing how a change in wire color can really affect the whole look. Another great wrapping! I love the matrix in the turquoise–maybe you could also try your hand at antiquing the wire with patina. The gel version might do the trick–but practice first–that stuff only takes a second to darken! I can’t believe your teaching yourself to do this! :)
