Project # 2 Of Deryn's Challenge






I had a blast making these! I used flame colored copper, then I crimped it and folded it. Copper wire was used for the wrap and copper beads are hanging inside. The brass rose beads on the top are from some old, old jewelry that I had in my stash. I made the ear wires from GF 21 Ga wire. After I assembled everything I decided the folded copper would look better if I filed the high spots of the crimps and polished them a bit.






I like the aged look that they have.
