When the focal arrived...I looked at it for a few weeks! I loved the swirl in the design!
To bring out the swirl, I decided to coil copper wire and include some glass beads from Bubby & McGurk. I picked all polka dot style in a wide variety of colors! They are all mismatched because I really wanted to bring color into this piece so I could wear it with anything.
You will notice the center of the coiled pieces are slightly bent...this is to curve it with the wrist! I think it almost has a spider like look! :)
Last, I added a patina look clasp and some czech glass near the focal. To bring the coils together
at each end, I used some large link copper chain.
I hope you like what I created! I can't wait to hop around
and see what each person made! Click on the links below to hop with me! :)
