I couldn't catch my breath enough to get day 3 in time, so I'll combine them :)
The sale in Artisan Whimsy is still on - check the original post and visit the other participants for amazing
giveaways and deals! Have a handmade Holiday season :)
Today we get back to some copper - simply copper. You can see I fell in love with it, and it's quite surprising, it doesn't look as good as silver on my skin. But still - an extraordinary material to work with (I don't feel anything for brass or bronze yet, no idea why)
Less talk and more images - I present you Anna, a complete set: earrings, bracelet & necklace in simply copper.
Anna means gracious in Greek and the set pieces (there is a necklace / pendant and a pair of earrings) are exactly that: a gracious flow of metal in elegant swirls.
The whole set is a happy accident :) I meant to do something else and it didn't work - at all! So I had this 12" long copper wires in 18 ga or 20 ga... despite the fact I have a 1 lb roll, I could not throw them out, so I started to play with them and before I knew it I had the first earring done. I loved it so much I simply had to make a whole set :) Of course they match quite nicely with the rings too.
And that's it for today... I'll be back tomorrow with the Miss Erin's Challenge of Colour (which was a challenge!) and on Saturday with Lisa's Holiday Floral hop (which was a surprise for me - the result... you must come back and see that one!)
