My last post featured a few earrings made with gorgeous white copper clay from artist Kristi Bowman (her shop can be found here). Well, I ran out, so I had to buy some more!
I ordered a few copper components for earring pairs, and a pair of white copper clay Coptic Crosses. Kristi was extremely generous and included much more than I originally ordered! Kristi - a fellow horse lover (who is not a horse lover???) - wanted to help me in my continuing efforts to raise funds in support of Miracle Horse Rescue.
Look at all these beauties!
I am particularly fond of these copper Buddha charms
And look at the design possibilities with these! Her ability to achieve such a lovely patina with a torch amazes me!
I chose these to work with first - Goddess Charms
Not only is the texture and the color phenomenal, but there is just the slightest arc in those charms - that arc is what causes the copper to reflect the light so perfectly!
I topped these beautiful Goddess charms with equally lovely, organic lampwork beads by Juith Billig
Judith entitled these beads Turquoise Relics - I love the name as much as the beads!
Thank you from the bottom of my heart Kristi!! Please be sure to visit Kristi's shop - I could spend all day there!
Thanks for stopping by today - have a lovely weekend! And, Happy Mother's Day!!!!
