Making a necklace with copper

Technique Tuesday!

Yesterday I showed you the necklace that I made using the copper findings and beads that I received from Auntie’s Beads.


You’ll need copper colored wire, some stone rounds and chips (I used turquoise and coral), and lots of cool copper stuff!

Turquoise and coral rounds, 4mm and 6mm
Turquoise and coral chips
Copper colored or red beading wire
Copper chain, hook, crimps, jump rings, and head pins
Copper round bead, floral patterned, 7mm
Copper 2mm rounds, daisy spacers, bead caps, and hammered round links

Chain nose pliers
Wire cutters
Measuring tape

      I adore copper and this is really sweet. I tweeted you and hope you get some hits from it.

      Thanks so much Lois! I’m glad you like the design…I’ve done a few similar ones with different stones and they are always fun to make :-)
