A new year of Jewelry

Its a new year and I have signed up for the Year of Jewelry Challenge one more time. I grew so much last year doing the challenge, let’s hope I can grow by such leaps and bounds this year. I have a lot of great ideas, I just hope that I can actually make them come to fruition.

This is the first weeks piece with the theme of  “I can do this.” This is a style I have wanted to try for a long time. One of the other challenge members had posted several pieces such as this and I have wanted to do it ever since. This piece is made with two pieces of 18 gauge copper. Each piece has a different cut out, although I haven’t photographed the back yet. Sandwiched in between is 40 gauge copper woven with scrap book paper strips. The color is from heating the metal in my handy little toaster oven.
