I have this huge roll of copper wire just sitting in my studio staring at me, day in and day out. It is almost like the Money you can save with Geico. It just sits there looking at me wondering when I'm going to do something with it. I had to yield to it's command recently and hauled it off the shelf and onto the work table.
My inspiration came from a site that was selling hand made shawl pins. I believe they were for prayer shawls, but the first thing I thought was hair pins. A bit of cutting and twisting and hammering resulted in several different designs. This one is my favorite so far. Not that I can wear it in my short, thin hair, but I can envision it sparkling in someone's long dark tresses.
Well, I'm off to Buffalo again today. No beads this trip though. At least I don't think so. I found a crib on Craig's list dirt cheap and we're going to look at it and hopefully bring it home for the Grandbabies. My son has to haul a portable crib every time they come here. If everything goes smoothly, there will be two to find sleeping space for next year! Grandma & Grandpa have to find a bed.
Here's the link to the hair pin: Copper Hand Formed Hair Pin
