anneal it to work with it again. To finish the copper work on this bracelet, I put it in the sand on my woodstove (which, poor thing, is working overtime this winter!) so it would be softened and easier to manupilate. I took it out this morning and it had such a beautiful patina on it (red-magenta tones) I had to take some pictures of it. It's not done, but I wanted to share this method of adding a patina to copper!
I also worked on another woven bracelet - this time with some wonderfully sparkly AB drop crystal beads woven with some dark bronze 6/0 seed beads and some amber shaded 6/0 seed beads.
I added a couple of Vintaj brass end caps
and a fabulous crystal studded brass toggle clasp
