I have been playing with wire and beads since early this morning. Since it has been snowing, snowing, snowing, I decided to just stay in today and see what I could get done. I made another Egyptian coil bracelet and added a lovely turquois bead to it, then made pendants, also using the coil. I plan to hang them from leather cord. I also made several more of my peace discs (pictured a few days earlier) for earrings and made a couple of batches of jump rings. Jeanne came over and I showed her how to make the E. coil bracelet and she tried adding one of her lampwork beads to it - a very nice touch! She's going to finish it up at home - I can't wait to see the finished product. So, it's been a very busy day. I'm calling it a night! Until tomorrow. Sweet Dreams!


  1. really lovely bracelet! did you use liver of sulfur to patina it? the copper wire looks fabulous with that turquoise bead.

  2. Thanks, Mrs. B! I did use LOS in the liquid form - easy to use. After that, I scrubbed it a bit with an SOS pad :) just to bring out some of the pretty copper color, rinced it, and placed it in the tumbler. Makes it nice and shiney! Glad you liked it! Anita
