I save all of my metal scraps from different projects - I don't throw much out. I find that scraps are perfect for those days when you want to try something new. Sometimes I have just enough to make little charms. This time I had enough copper wire to make a cute bird pendant and two pairs of stud/post earrings. The first pair are twisted wire sticks the second pair are braided hoops. The earrings are a test project that I'll keep for myself. Hmmm, I may make another pair in bronze and list them.
