Welcome to the Kristi Bowman Copper Component Blog Hop
I am a great admirer of Kristi's work in Copper metal clay and when I read about this blog hop on her blog I thought it would be a good chance for me to own one of her pieces and make a new necklace for myself. I love to make long dangly necklaces to wear in the winter with Turtle Neck shirts and sweaters.
We had a choice of the sea urchin or ammonite component. I chose the piece pictured above and when it arrived I was so pleased with the way that it looks and feels. Has a weight to it and it is thick enough to hold up to a lot.
From the very beginning, it was a SUN to me. Maybe because at that time and since I have been making some sun charms and connectors beads in my ceramic studio.
So I set to work to make this necklace as long as possible and for it to shine with COPPER SUN. All of the beads I used were handmade by me either in ceramic clay, fused glass, copper (the sun shaped flower) felt, or seed beads. A few of the copper rings are from Tierra Cast, the others are copper washers that I stamped. The smaller copper chain is from Ornamentea and the larger one is an Industrial Chic Chain by Susan Lenart Kazmer from Michaels.
( the pictures of my piece start at the very bottom and go upward with a full shot at the end.)
Thank you Kristi for making this fun blog hop possible!!!
