I’ve been working on earrings and necklaces and besides the beautiful creamy pearls I normally use I’ve made a few pieces with some delightfully shaped freshwater pearls that are barely blue (they also look great with steel wire).  I was on such a copper+pearl binge that I am now out of several gauges of copper wire and all but the tiniest pearls.

Tomorrow I’ll be working with some lovely smoky crystals and gold wire.

First thing this morning I opened up the delivery from yesterday and put two of my favourite things together – pearls and copper.  These earrings are not very big, about an inch long, the next ones will be longer, and have more pearls.

I have many partially finished pieces right now, but nothing near completion.  Plus I keep changing my mind about which way to go with my favourite bits, many of which include pearls and copper wire.  I am loving both the copper and steel wires I’ve been working with lately (and I always love pearls!).

This week I was at a few parties with people I don’t see often but whom I adore, it was a great way to start the year.  Eating as much fantastic party food as I did, maybe not such a great way to start the year.
