Oh I got into a copper frenzy here. We had an intern at work and she left for home a few days ago so I made her a necklace and matching earrings. Well it was more the other way round really, I made the earrings first and then the necklace while I was in the swing of it.
I found the earrings in the interweave (I think) book 101 Wire Earrings. I really like that book by the way. I like most of the designs and I think it is great for ideas and inspiration. Sometimes I think I do regret a little that I have my ear holes stretched. Maybe I should just see if they in smaller again if I let them. Anyway. The earrings are very easy, just a little bit hammering here and there, some beads and more hammering.
I found inspiration for the necklace in Linda Jones’ book The Complete Guide to Wire and Beaded Jewellery. I only replaced their dangly bits with my earring dangly bits and finished. Quite easy really, and I love how they all look.
Got another photo that shows the necklace better, altho it is a little shiny:
