|Organic Rustic Copper Blooms|
For week 1- I revisited an old design with a different metal. These rustic blooms are made of copper with a sterling center- on sterling ear wires. I wanted to use copper for two reasons- I love the warmth (and it won’t be touching skin) and I wanted to play with a patina. The patina was to be blue and I still don’t really see blue. I don't mean a hint of blue- I'm talking about a bright cobalt. And since they are sealed- I’m not getting the glow from the copper that I love so much- except for around the edges. I want to play with the process some more.
