I’ve just been given a gift of copper tubing and other assorted copper pieces left over from a construction job. An architect friend was thoughtful enough to save them for me from a recent job. It feels like Christmas! I’m imagining all the things I can create with these. Those perfect, closed copper circles will be just right for the frames of pendants and earrings. Wow, I don’t know what to start first! Oh, all the possibilites. I ran out to buy a Junior Tube Cutter from Home Depot and just received the Gilders’ Paste I ordered. The patina would look great on the tubing. I can’t wait to start playing!
I’ll have to put it off though. I recently participated at a jewelry party and have special orders to fill. That will be a future post since I forgot to take my camera and will have to wait for my friend and fellow jewelry artist to send me her photos. First things first.
Thanks so much Keith for sending me your leftover scraps! Talk about one man’s trash.
