Copper is a metal I have been using a lot of lately, especially with the price of silver - copper is a wonderful alternative - it is warm, fun and adds a beautiful dimension to any piece. An example of this is the ear wires from BlueDressDesigns. The glass flower caps were also from Jen.
One thing I adore is lampwork beads - they are hard to resist! I have a few favs that I have bought over the past couple of years, namely Melissa's Beads in which I incorporated within this necklace
and Bead Up A Storm in which this one is about to be made up into a piece I have created with Precious Metal Clay (PMC)
Speaking of PMC - this piece was created using Beadles lampwork beads for inspiration - the lampies compliment the turquoise stone beautifully.

My latest love is looming - the pattern is the integral part of creating a loomed design, this snow leopard cuff was designed by the talented BeadsBeadingBeaded
