Tubac Holiday Artisan Market - Third Piece

Ok - here's the third of four pieces I am submitting to the 2009 Tubac Holiday Artisan Market called "Winter" :


"Winter"

The layered metal centerpieces are based on the first Jewelry pieces we did in Deryn Mentock's Jewelry Challenge from Mary Hettmansperger's book, "Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet: Making Designer Metal Jewelry" (I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn to work with metal in their jewelry).  They are made out of etched brass, fire-melted/patinaed copper mesh and textured and patinaed copper layered and riveted together.



The necklace & bracelet are made from beautiful deep brick/burgundy red crystals strung on recycled guitar strings (the pictures look much brighter red than the actual pieces), lengths of vintage rosary chain with burgundy glass beads and lengths of aged copper chain.


Off to finish my fourth & final set, "Summer"...

The red beads and the copper and brass make a stunning combination! Beautiful work! Unfortunately, I found Deryn's blog when you all were finishing the last project. It would have been fun to play along. But next time!
