...And you thought copper wire was only for wiring a house!

16 gauge wire hammered flat into shapes or curves
are a great way to show off stones
 like these Jasper ovals...

Wire also is a complement to Vintage watch faces
especially when you place them back to back
on a pair of dangle earrings
so you look good both coming and going...

The Southwest patterns on these earthenware slabs
are also a good fit with copper wire; these two
are finished on both sides making them reversible...

Spirals can be mesmerizing! Combine them with
semi-precious Sodalite chunks to create earrings
with that winning combination...

Stoneware slab shards (finished each side) are
topped with copper coiled wire stems
which end in smaller spirals...

Faceted Oregon Opals dangle from these textured
copper buttons accented with copper wire
interlocking spirals...

And all of this wire was up-cycled by Linda Anderson
after completing some updates on her home; she
was kind enough to share it with me...
