Another copper and turquoise beaded necklace

The other day I shared a handmade beaded necklace of copper and turquoise. Now there's a new one! I stamped the copper discs with a crackle-patterned stamp to give them a more textured look.

Maybe you're wondering why I got on the copper kick. When my beaded bracelet won second place in the Fire Mountain Gems and Beads beading contest, I received a gift certificate from the company. I decided to spend it on products that were new to me. Since I mostly work with sterling silver and vermeil, copper seemed like an interesting change.

But that's not the only new product I bought. Stay tuned throughout the new year: there are many new mixed media jewelry projects ahead!
