Blue Peas Anyone?

About this design:

I made this piece per a custom order request for a trade with a woman in PA who made displays. I love working with metal and shaping/hammering/torching it into submission!


copper sheet metal (heat-treated), faceted glass beads, balled copper wire, copper chain/clasp

    This is too cool!!! I love this concept! Growing up my mom referred to me and my sisters as “3 peas in a pod”1 :-)

    Wow! Thank you all so very much. I am working on my website, but at this time, I’m trying to get ready for a week long show in 3 weeks, so I will let you all know within that time when I have a few things on there. For now, most of the pieces have to go to the show. :( I appreciate all of you, you are all wonderful!

    Oh, sorry. This piece took me approximately 2 hours or so. I do it all by hand (filing, etc.), so it takes me a little longer. It is definitely a labor of love. :)
