At a jewelry party I recently participated in, I sold some of my older pieces (along with new ones) . Some of these had been sitting in my online shop for over a year and I had all but given up on them thinking that perhaps they were not good enough. I am glad I didn’t dissassemble them as I’m prone to do. They were a big hit. In fact, I had special requests to make more of them!
It was a treat to revisit my spiral link necklace and to create another one. This time, the only change I made was in the combination and the oxidizing of the metals. The original necklace was made of copper and brass and, at that time, I did not oxidize my jewelry. The newer version is all copper and is oxidized. I’ve grown to appreciate that aged look.
So here are photos of both the original and the newer version. Unfortunately, the older photo is not great. My photographs too, have evolved (I hope) and a better camera didn’t hurt.
