What was your inspiration?
Heat treated copper metal piece from my friend in Wisconsin was the starting point. I decided to offset the copper splash when I attached it to the pendant, and wanted to create a collage for the other half. I love how the various materials work together!
What are you most proud of?
My first attempt at collage, I like how it turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Try adding all kinds of materials SECURELY to an item. All of these are secured with copper wire. Use one color (turquoise) to tie the whole thing together.
