More Fun with Copper Sheet

I’m having a great time playing and pounding copper sheet to make jewelry.  From tiny flowers to cuffs and now necklaces, I can’t seem to stop.  Maybe it’s all that hammering that feels so good.  Or perhaps it’s that primitive, tribal, ethnic look I find so appealing.   I’ve just begun to experiment with oxidizing the copper sheet for different color effects and find it amazing that this base metal can be so transformed.  I’m also seeing replicas of my cuffs appearing on facebook.  Umm… they do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery so I’ll leave it at that.

Here are some new creations.
