Copper Figure Eights

by Lynda Carson.
(Spring Valley, California USA)


This has to be one of my favorite jewelry combos…copper and abalone. The copper links were made with 20 gauge wire from the hardware store. Linked them with small abalone chunks and attached a larger abalone pendant. Oxidized, scrubbed and polished with steel wool…oh, my aching hands.
