New Copper Pendants, Necklace & Earring sets!














Click the images to enlarge









Well these are the latest! I've been waiting for the copper beads to come and they did today. I prepared the pendants a few days ago and then strung them up when the shipment arrived. I guess looking back, I started off right where I left off... with copper. It's such a warm color, easy to work with and works so well with many stones.

In these, I have tumbled stones of wonderful colors, I used brown leather cord, finished simply with copper wrap and for the focal beads, there are Lapis, Lemon Jade, Carnelian and Pietersite.
Whew! I'll be listing in the store soon but these might end up at the local shops instead... anyway...

They are meant to be worn as chokers and rather then using a clasp, I leave the leather 'unfinished' and they are worn tied. The bulk of the leather isn't uncomfortable and it holds better then anything! Easy to wear. I've sold them this way before and it seems to work out right fine. :) I always give an option for a clasp certainly, but leaving them this way also makes for easy length adjustments. Just wear them as you like!

I've also worked on some new simple but I think, elegant earrings and silver pendants. I'm liking the 'natural' look these days and I think it's starting to show in my pieces! I'll post more images soon.

If you're interested, all the copper pendants are created with the same basic wrap technique, which is easy and great to use with large focal beads that are drilled top down. I lost some tutorials when the computer crashed but have recreated the Butterfly pendant tutorial. :) It's listed in the store...I'm slowly starting to relist things.
Hugs! I'd love opinions if you have a second.

Your wire work is wonderful! I'm afraid practice will only get me so far. I don't have the creativity you do in all these beautiful wraps.

Copper jewelry wire is much less expensive than precious metals like silver and gold filled wire. Copper wire is a great practice metal for beginners.

I love working with wire, but I'm new, so my pieces don't look as nice as yours. Is there a secret to keeping copper looking pretty? All of the copper I've used has turned either dull or black. Makes me hesitate to use it again.
Your work is absolutely gorgeous!!!

I really love your work. The copper pendants are brilliant, its one of a kind. It matches well with the stones and beads that you put around I'm pretty sure that it will go well with any outfit that you are going to wear. Incredible job and keep up the good work!

IzzyGumbo said...

thank you so much! I appreciate all of your comments and I do love to work with the copper, it's a wonderful wire, yes hard to keep 'fresh' but there are some ways and products for keeping it, I don't actually use anything, just care. I also think that a bit of tarnish on it looks loved but it's a personal choice. Enjoy the free tutos! I am taking a week for new jewelry at the end of this month, so wish me luck! I hope to have some new things out for this spring. xoxo enjoy your wire! ;)
