New pictures- part 2
Last one in this post. I made coiled beads from recycled copper fashioned a square frame from silver, added chocolate coloured cultured fresh water pearls and bail silver beads to make these unique and quirky earrings I thinks they look fab but I'm biased!!!!!!
I love these earrings and have made a slightly larger pair for myself. The recycled copper wire was coiled and I added lovely charcoal grey cultured freshwater pearls on silver wire at the bottom. The fittings are sterling silver too as I never use the raw copper for earwire, way too risky!!!
This pendant is a bit of an experiment in riveting, I used recycled copper sheet which I hand textured and drilled. The silver piece is the handle of a silver spoon (I used the bowl for another pendant for little old me) which I hammered flat and riveted then soldered to the pendant. I love the ridges on the handle which were there already.
This is a pendant made from recycled copper sheet which I fold formed and added cultured fresh water pearls and a sterling silver handmade bail. I have left it to darken naturally which has given it a really nice colour
This is a pendant made from cultured freshwater pearls and recycled copper. I love making these nest because quite frankly you never really know how they will turn out which lends itself very well to my low boredom threshold lol!
