Copper 'n Peas Please

About this design:

I so enjoy working with metals and forging them into organic forms. These types of peapods are something I started making about 1 1/2 years ago. I added a picture of some earrings that match this quite well. They were made from the same materials as well.

    This necklace is a perfect example of why I like beading. This is so unique. I love how each beader pulls from their own uniqueness and creates. Very nice.

    Thank you so much, everyone! Unfortunately, I did not make this chain. I got it from one of my good friend’s who owns Beadbury in Osseo, MN. I love working with metal, especially manipulating it and trying to shape it into organic forms.
