I’ve wanted to do copper work for as long as I can remember and I finally did it. These are photos of my latest work. This is copper etching and thependant above has a feather. I’ve hung it on three strands of titanium-coated hematite beads that are a wonderful cube-cut. The cut and colour complement the copper pendant beautifully.
Copper-coloured freshwater pearls and a few ebony wood beads make this pendant really pop. This piece is sold! At the request of the buyer, I added vintage copper chain to extend the length if so desired which adds to the versatility of the necklace. It can be worn with different necklines. She tells me she’s worn it every day since I delivered it to her a week ago! It’s light and easy to wear.
There’s a fossil fish in the pendant on the right. It’s on titanium-covered hematite beads and I’ve added a few turquoise beads as accents.
