Mixed Metal Earrings

Had fun making this earrings out of mixed metals.  Copper and brass in the top photo, and sterling and copper in the lower image.  The round disks have been textured and dapped to make them domed.

Copper Fold Formed Cuff

I have had the supplies for this cuff for a very long time, and have wanted to make it long before now, but never got around to it until today.  It was the MOST fun.   I will have to look to see if I have enough copper sheeting to make another one.    It is fabricated from 24 gauge copper and is about 1 1/2" wide.

Copper Wire Spiral Beaded Necklace

This was fabricated from 18 g pure copper wire.  Each link was hand forged to harden and texture, and was antiqued with liver of sulfur.  The beads are handmade lampwork beads by Beth Singleton on etsy.

Copper Wrapped-Links Necklace

Made this one yesterday.  I used 14g pure copper wire for the wrapped links.  The beads are some sort of rustic bead, maybe recycled glass?  (I can't remember and I no longer have the info.)  This is 24" long and can be simply slipped over one's head.  There is a hook but is not necessary to unhook to put on or take off.
