Now to see if I can post another whole month! The last few days I have been looking for projects to create and post here. I have purchased enough crafting supplies to keep going the rest of the year or more. In particular I got out my paper making supplies. The weather has been warm and pleasant enough to make paper. A great way to cool off playing in water and being productive at the same time! I also have a plan to make my first skirt, that should be good for a few laughs. So I hope everyone reading this will keep coming back.
Today's project is what I messed up on yesterday. I got out some heaver wire, this time 16 gauge copper and made a series of oval loops. It wasn't what I was planning but I feel to will be lovely. Once it was shaped I went back and started rapping a 26 gauge copper wire around the 16 gauge copper wire. I played with the idea of changing to another color of wire but decided to use copper on copper. It has been a bit dangerous because the wire can whip around and strike but I'm trying to be careful. I wouldn't recommend trying this without eye protection! Here is the pendant so far.
It is interesting how much this changes the texture and shine of the piece. After it is done I will place crystal drops on it and then make a wired crystal for the necklace part.
