I love flames. I really enjoyed playing with my torch with annealing and adding patina. Tons of fun.
Here's what I came up with today:
I riveted the hand forged shank after adding some nice patterns to the copper and an adorable handmade lampwork flower bead that I picked up at a bead show.
After cutting out two equal strips of 24 gauge copper sheet, I annealed and added heat patina with patterns. Then I added the gorgeous lampwork beads on the bottom with hand made silver ear wires. They actually look a bit heavier than they are. They are super comfortable to wear. I love them so much!
