I did some copper etching last week. The earrings were inspired by Cindy Wimmer's necklace in the last Step By Step Wire. They're not for the faint of heart measuring about 2 7/8" long. The skyline bangle is 1 1/2" wide and was done with a stamp and Staz-on ink which I then went over with a Sharpie. The waves bangle is 1" wide and also used a stamp for the design.
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.
