These are made with copper wire. I had made some square wire for an earlier project, but it was a larger gauge, so I rolled it through the rolling mill to make it smaller. Bending the square wire without twisting it was challenging. I decided to patina the copper with liver of sulfur before adding the aquamarine beads in two different shades.
I want to thank you, Joanne, for all the new designs which are both beautiful and have been educational!
