Wire wrapped , red and copper !!!

I have been working on this piece for weeks. I would work a bit, put it down, work a bit, put it down. I need new glasses so my eyes get very tired, so for now, I have to work and stop and work and stop. I will get glasses as soon as an issue in one of my eyes is resolved, and it keeps me from getting glasses which is so frustrating !! I hope things clear up soon, I really need my new glasses !!

I had purchased online, a couple of years ago, a bunch of beaded pendants. I could make these pendants but it was a good price and they were pretty and I bought them. Most have sequins, which also expains why I purchased them, my absolute love of sequins, and two did not.

A few weeks ago, they caught my eye and I wanted to figure out what to do with them. I looked at the ones without sequins and got an idea to roll one up,  use copper wire to hold it and make it decorative somehow. Once that was done, I decided to make a beaded , wire wrapped chain. It took weeks, but here it is, I am so pleased with it. I have it on Etsy, I am still deciding , lol, so it is on Etsy and I will put the link to the actual listing at the end of the post,

I used several gauges of wire on this piece, but had so much fun. I love copper and I am starting to use more of it. I could have put a chain on this, or a cord, but the copper with the red , cherry red, glass beads , just appealed to me.

I also made the clasp as well, then hammered it for strength and looks, here are some pictures of my work table as I worked on this piece

  1. Thanks so much to both of you !!! I was pretty proud of that clasp !!! The copper wire is just stunning so it made it easy to make something pretty !! I have done a few in silver wire and they are nice, but not like that copper, I agree, red and copper, wow, that is why I HAD to make this piece !!!
