Fool's Gold UPDATED

I have really been plugging away at the whole jewelry thing!  I have the Wire Wrappin' Fever and there is NO cure!

I also bought a TON of new stones!  Sonora Sunrise, Labradorite, Dendritic Jasper, Rhyolite, and I'm so excited to get to work.

I have a new piece, a Fool's Gold (Pyrite) Donut wrapped in copper, and I just love it. I must confess, I've been wearing it everyday even though it's for sale.  59.00 plus shipping...



If you're interested shoot me an email. I have made some minor adjustments since taking these pictures. Notice the end caps? Those are probably my favorite part of the piece. You see, my husband's uncle passed away recently. He was an avid trapper and had tons of copper tags in which he would use to label the animal pelts. I happen to have inherited quite a few of these tags and I just love working with them. The caps are pieces of copper tag that I rolled up, and then soldered the wire spiral across the tube. I thought they were way too cool to hide in the back, so I brought them up to the front.






























Here are some UPDATED pictures (of the new configuration):




My next piece (currently in progress) is a high quality Labradorite!  It's very, very nice.
There's much more to come, so stay tuned.
