AND! I got to make the inner Pyro happy! I used flame to darken the copper in the necklace. I'm going to have to break down and buy a small hand-held torch. Those candle lighter lighters don't do a great job (tho', if you're patient, and heat from underneath or aim the flame inside the tube, it works better... prettier colors... just sayin')
|1" long copper tubes that have been pounded|
by the peen on my craft hammer. Winter blue
beads and a lighter blue crystal bead as accents.
|Closer look ~ can you see the hammer marks?|
What they say is true, even if it's not pounding,
it's still theraputic to beat on something! :)
|MY version of the necklace Linda created.|
I'm also not as good with the metal as her...
yet! Some day... Still liking this, tho'!
|A closer look at the flowers I made. Yellow |
crystals added to blue plastic flower forms
and all hooked to a jump ring and hooked
onto the end of the wire.
