Free form copper pendant with moss opal center stone and imperial jasper beads on chain.

My inspiration is nature. I live and work in the woods.

Copper is my metal of choice but I do do a lot of mixed metal pieces. Every piece I make is hand cut.

Copper leaf with opal center stone. Strung on several strands of coated irish linen and bead chain.

The only piece of equipment I use is a flex shaft and hammers (other than pliers of course). I love my “job”, all my pieces are a labor of love !

  • This collection is fabulous, Joanne! Each piece feels earthy. The copper feather in particular feels like an ancient artifact. Your free form copper pieces are very appealing, and I like the various ways you attach them to necklaces.

    Absolutely stunning! Where do you find the copper pieces? I winter in AZ and have seen copper jewelry at shows but don’t know where to find them.
