Copper, Copper and More Copper!

Gorgeous shiny copper rings were the focus of my Saturday afternoon. Managed to come up with a couple of pairs of earrings and a bracelet.

The bracelet is the Double Spiral pattern, just love the feel of this rope pattern as it rolls between your fingers.

The earrings are in the patterns Barrels and Byzantine, with the Byzantine ones given a twist by adding a Swarovski Crystal Butterfly on the end of each.

New Earrings

Have just added a few new pairs of earrings to my Etsy and Artfire shops.
These earrings were all created using antique copper finish findings and I matched them with turquoise, amazonite and amber beads.

Custom Bracelet

I've been working on a custom bracelet which a friend of mine has requested. She's a lover of amber and I've put together a bracelet incorporating 14mm and 10mm brown amber beads with bali silver beads and spacers. A large bali bead which was purchased at the Toronto Jewellery, Gem and Mineral show is the focal point. It's easy to get carried away when creating a design, using lots of materials, but you have to be careful with it as sometimes the price point can become too prohibitive for the client. This is what I've got so far, am waiting for the exact size of her wrist to finish it.

Snagged A Treasury!

Well my patience paid off and I managed to snag a Treasury on Etsy. It's all chainmaille with crystals incorporated from various members of the Etsy Chainmaillers Team :-)

Here's the link to the Treasury, it only lasts a couple of days.
