Copper Balled Headpins - this is addictive

Playing with fire is addictive - making ball head pins, that is! And the best of all (in my wide post-experiment eyes) is that I was able to make the copper heads RED! Yeeehaa!
My plan (call it New year resolution, if you will) is to try to explore more jewellery making techniques than I tried so far (until now it was mainly wire wrapping), so I can expand the possibilities of my designs.

Layering Necklaces

I like layering necklaces and always combine some vintage ones I own with some new that I designed and made.  The possible combinations are endless and include necklaces of various lengths, or all same length, but different textures/ beads... Yuo get the idea. It's the best thing you can do, if you have simply one too many necklaces:)
Here is just an example of 2 necklaces of same lengths that go well together.
Both necklaces are desinged and made by me.

Brass and Coral Bracelet

Here is something I made for my mum before Christmas! My mum loves coral, so here is an overload.
Just an assembled bracelet with 3 sizes of coral beads and brass chain and details.
