Warm Up Your Winter
Get a head start on one of the biggest colors of the upcoming season. Orange is going to be everywhere this spring and summer according to the fashion gurus.
Variations of orange and red are the prominent colors of these four selections that will give you a mood lift during even the coldest days of winter! I use orange white heart trade beads in the top left necklace, along with red turquoise and yellow. On the lower right is another multi-strand necklace of bright coral seed beads. And of course both pairs of earrings feature red/orange hues as well.
In each of these photos one or more of the components are my slightly primitive hand forged copper. Some are patinated with color, some with heat, and some with a basic darkening agent. To see more of my hand forged metal work, click here or here.
