Improved Copper

I’ve been continuing with my metalwork the last few weeks, making many new designs for copper pendants. I am ramping up production on these for my first big craft show in November. Here are some of my latest pendants: another smaller version of the Horned Lizard, two different variations on an Armadillo, an Insect design, and a Mandala (which is a Buddhist/Hindu meditative symbol representing the cosmos). The Insect and Mandala Designs are the first round pendants that I’ve made. I’ve been cutting the blanks myself from a sheet of copper, so round pendants are a little more work than square ones but I am very happy with the way these turned out.
