"Ravin" Re~Done

About this design:

First off please excuse the pictures. I have very little space to take pictures. Putting up my light box takes up my working room or my dining room table. So, when I use the light box it's a several day event with very little jewelry making time.
This is my bracelet that I put up last week. I named it "Ravin" after "Vampire chicky Ravin." Because it reminded me of her.
I decided to change the color because I wasn't all that thrilled with it. It seemed to dark and muddy looking. So, I got out my trusty Dremel tool and a round wire brush thingy and after much flying debris and a used up wire brush thingy!!WALLAH!!! It was back to copper. Then I did a fire patina with my torch. It's a bit hard to see the color in these pictures. But, this thing is like "Mother of Pearl."
I am so happy with the change. I think it fits Our "Ravin" more and more. Her jewelry is also in transformation. Keep it us girl you are coming up with some great stuff!!
