Copper Knots

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great night of celebration. I stayed in and tried my hand at new jewelry things. Twas fun.

Since my Sterling order hasn’t shown up yet, I played with the copper today. Spent the day trying to get the hang of that hammering thing I was having trouble with earlier, played with different loops and swirls. After quite a bit of trial and error, out popped these earrings. 🙂

I made a couple of pair, I’m think I’m liking them. I also tried my hand at more Garnet pendants. More practicing for when the silver gets here, I have something almost gelled in my head but I just can’t quite get it to come out. I’m not really all that thrilled with this one, but figured I’d share anyhow.

Today I want to make a bracelet I think. I made so many different kinds of copper links and swirls and whoopdy-doos I’m thinking maybe I can string them together and make something with them. Some kind of “Hodgepodge Bracelet” or something. No idea what that means exactly… not quite gelled yet. We’ll see what comes out after playing with it a bit.

I’m off for more adventures in jewelry.

Later taters!
