New Work!

The cuff on the right is not finished yet but I have been playing around with other metals along with the silver and gold.  I like the textures and colors of copper, especially when mixed with the darker flat finish of jasper.  Because I used 14 gauge wire I need the assistance of my husband's strong fingers to adjust the shape.  14 gauge is a little too much for my fingers.
The cuff on the left  is done with sterling silver, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise and Red Coral beads.  It is almost done it needs to be tweaked and straightened.
