Lapis Lasuli and Copper by blackcurrantjewelry Lapis Lasuli and Copper by blackcurrantjewelry
Another pendant from flat copper wire, actually it was first one. New technique always inspires me and the first try sometimes one of the best, that's why I'm always looking for something new...

Copper wire (I made it flat), lapis lasuli beads.

Absolutely amazing blend, reminiscent of Victorian glamour but so much more. Truly beautiful piece.

Incredible! I am agog with awe and can only wonder at the amount of time it took to flatten the wire and make those smooth swoopy loops and curls. :heart:

If you make a lot of wire at once and use proper tools it doesn't take too long...

Will you make a tutorial on how you flatten your wire? It is soooo beautiful and I want so bad to try it but am not sure how you do it lol

Thank you :)
I can give you advise in the personal note if you wish : )
Unfortunately there is no point of making a tutorial for two reasons:
1. It's very easy to flatten wire with rolling mill but the mill costs $900 and I could use it only in jewelry class.
2. Second step is to soften wire with torch, and it's better to have a special studio and competent instructor for both steps, otherwise somebody might harm himself or others :(

Ahhh I knew it! But darn, I've seen some wrappers use hammers but yours was just toooooo smooth and beautiful to be done that way. I'm excited you get to use that method and make beautiful jewelry for me to gawk at but sad I cannot try it myself lol. Well maybe someday I'll take a class and get to use one, for now I'll make do with what I've got :) Thanks for explaining though! :D
