I have been having lots of fun! (Isn't that what retirement is all about?) The other day I was looking through a stash of my handmade beads and decided to play with different color and texture combinations. After trying about eery combo I could come up I made my final selections. I pounded copper for accent pieces - made the copper jump rings - searched my vintage glass bead collection for just the right accent beads . After I finalized the "look" I connected my beads to the copper chain. It is a fun necklace! Let me know what you think - I love your feedback!
