About this design:

I have been in a creative rut for the last several months :-( Inspiration has been elusive. But I got a new wine colored sweater a few weekends ago and needed something to go with it. Pulled out my TierraCast charms, wire, garnets and was finally inspired!


TierraCast Charms, Garnet, Hessonite, copper wire and copper chain
