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.
I've been playing with copper again and made these pretties. There are a number of shades of blue that work well with copper and this is one of them. In going through my bead stash I came across these blue glass lentil shape beads - there were two, so of course I made earrings. I'll be listing them in our Etsy shop in the new year.
