Cold Connections and Mixed Metals

Some big giant wire -10 gauge red brass and 16 gauge copper. I couldn't resist - I love how it looks and the weight of a bracelet that's made with it.
Red Brass wrapped around the handle of my baby ball peen hammer with some copper tube cut to length to hide the join. Tool marks are very evident, I see!
Brass links joined with 3 copper rings.....now I just have to figure out what to make for a closure.

Very pretty! I like that a lot. Of course I love anything with copper, but the red looks really great with it.
