Aztec Copper

I love working with copper and these are a design I came up with,..when wanting to incorporate more copper into my designs. I hammered the copper hoops and then wire wrapped the dyed Turquoise {Howlite} beads onto the hoop and also added copper beads. They are wire wrapped with Sterling Silver and then I gave everything a nice patina. I also hand fashioned the heavy duty ear wires with Sterling Silver.

Materials: copper howlite sterling silver

Techniques: wire wrapping hammering patina
