New from the Bench

I've been working with some heavy gauge copper wire lately - 12 or 14 gauge, I'm not sure.  It's been fun shaping it, forming it, beating on it and then heating it with the torch.  While going through my pile of UFO wire projects, I came across a length of viking knit perfect for a bracelet. 
I got some lovely ceramic beads with big holes that fit the viking knit perfectly.  I added three of them to the viking knit.
Added a couple of bali-style copper end caps

Fashioned a nice chunky clasp out of some of that 12 (or 14) gauge copper wire

The bead hole is big enough to move the beads and arrange them in any manner you would like.
