Copper Necklace


My husband called from work this morning and said that we were invited to go to his sister's house tonight for her birthday. He said,"Make something artsy for her." I had just gotten through looking at a blogsite for a lady who makes unique jewelry. I was inspired to make something from hammered wire. This is the necklace that I came up with. It is copper electrical wire, copper tubing, my own lampworked beads, and a couple of copper beads on a rubber cord.
Maybe I'll make myself one too.

Hi Sherri
Lovely piece of jewellery.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
The wire is annealed steel wire from hardware or craft stores, I'm not sure where Nina buys hers. It has a black coating which you rub off with a scourer, that gives it the lovely aged look. You don't have to age it with liver of sulphur.
