Trinket #57 - Alchemist's Necklace
Today's trinket is made from copper wire, a jasper bead (for the moon over the tree), and a bit of mahogany ribbon. This was a quickie because I made the tree pendant back in January, but did the final design of the necklace, the wire wrapping, clasp-making, and the construction tonight. It was a 10-minute piece!
On a side note, I just found out that I will soon face my biggest challenge on this trinket-making extravaganza: flying out of town for four days of work. As I will not have a checked bag, I am unable to take along any wire, pliers, or cutters. During the next ten days, I have to brush up on my macrame! Expect to see a lot of "unusual" pieces mixed in here with standard collection - and wish me luck.
