Hi everyone! Well I do like wirework and have been finding myself drawn towards copper. Used to be practice only, but lately i have been incorporating it into my designs more and more. I like the mixed metal look and the glass black and red heart pendant just felt right. I used 14G RND copper wire, formed the omega wire shapes on a mandrel (however a medium Sharpie works pretty well too), used a chasing hammer on a steel block to work harden and flatten them a little and connected with 14G jump rings I made. The chain was purchased at my local bead shop and cut down to size. I put it all together and came up with this! So cheers! Hope you like it - please let me know your thoughts!
