Mid-Week Mutterings - Copper Crazy
Got on a copper kick tonight. Needed to order more Antique Copper Meadow beads from Artbeads to finish the necklace I was stringing, so that will sit aside until the order arrives. While I was at it, I also got some Antique Copper Woodland beads, too. The necklace uses hessonite and champagne freshwater pearls I got at the Rings & Things roadshow, sunstone faceted roundells from Lima Beads and tiny copper bead caps, which you can also find at Rings & Things, from my local bead store, Global Beads.
The other necklace features an 'add a bead' neckwire in copper and vintage copper coated steel twisted curb chain from The Beadin' Path, some frosted peach glass beads with textured triangular impressions, twisted copper loops, and copper wire I also picked up at Global Beads and copper beads and headpins from Rings & Things. I'm almost done, some minor tweeks still needed.
The vintage chain is really lovely - a satin finish makes it gleam rather than shine, looks great with the peach beads, and since I have 6 of them left and plenty of chain, they'll probably wind up together in another necklace soon.
And that's all for my midweek mutterings, it's late and I'm worn out. Tomorrow I have a great interview feature for you, so don't miss it: Lisa from A Bead A Day!
