I was playing around with some copper the other day and this was the result. I wanted to see if this was something I could reasonably do in silver. It's just shy of 1 1/2" tall so it's pretty bold. The large lentil bead is one I purchased on Ebay from Beads by Lampwork.
I started my jewelry making journey in 2006 and it quickly took over my spare room and spread out into the living room. I was able to retire from my civil service job in August 2008 and I'm now able to focus on it full time.
