Textured copper workshop.

I had great time teaching a fun group of ladies all about texturing copper this weekend and their bracelets and earrings turned out beautifully.




I think the pictures speak for themselves.

Happy Creating.

A little chain fun.

I started making these resin pendants last year. At first I just hung them on a copper chain but some of them just called out for a little something extra so I started playing around with different variations of making my own 'chain' to hang them on. Now each time I make more resin pendants I experiment with different ways to make my own chain for it.
This is a combination of metallic seed beads and Crystals.
This was a new variation this time around. The strand of seed beads is woven through the links of a brass chain.
Another combination of white seed beads and coppery crystals.
Here the copper chain is linked on the stringing wire every so often with the seed beads.
And another seed bead and crystal combination.

These do take extra time to make but I think it makes them more interesting and special. Do you have any favourite kinds of 'chains'?

Happy Creating!
