I've taken the same 3mm copper bead and wired them onto the base wire in different patterns.
I then oxidized the batch, but to my disappointment the beads did not oxidize. The description doesn't say that there is any coating on them, but apparently there is a coating.
Above is the same design, only I have added some 24 gauge wire several times over the 18 gauge wire. Also, this pair of earrings has a larger loop at the top. I like the smaller loop that I made with the beaded earrings.
Now, I'm going to chill in front of the television, another way to de-stress.
I wish I knew how to take night pictures. I just looked out the office window to a clear sky and a lovely crescent shaped moon.
Thank you for visiting.
