One down, eight hundred to go!..........

Ok, maybe not eight hundred, but from everything I've crafted with the help of my new bench grinder, quite a few projects to be done!  I created a bracelet with some of the pennies and flattened wire pieces and am looking forward to doing many more.
I used 16 gauge brass wire for the links along with some wonderful little copper washers I got from magpie gemstones to create the base of the bracelet.........




wired in some aventurine beads on the domed pennies (beads from magpie gemstones)

added a few wheat pennies that I drilled


and finished it off with a handcrafted copper clasp.  I'm thinking of adding a patina to this bracelet - what do you think?
