Jewelry Inspired by the Beach

Winter has been long and hard this year. And, just about the time I pulled out my sandals, Mother Nature decided to drop even more snow. So, I don’t know about you all, but I am seriously craving the beach. Today’s pieces reflect my absolute obsession with all things tropical.

Each piece features copper wire (some more than others). The necklace is a choker-length single strand of gorgeous crystal faceted beads with three long strands of coiled copper wire as a focal.

For the earrings, I focused primarily on the copper wire, using a single strip of the crystal beads as an accent.

The memory wire bracelet is just too pretty! The beads transition through all the pretty pastel colors so nicely. I used a touch of copper wire on the ends as both an accent and to ensure that the beads stay firmly in place.

So, are you ready for your beach debut this year? Visit the Junebug Jewelry Store to see this collection and more.

If you know Junebug Jewelry, then you know I love, love, love making copper metal designs. The act of taking copper and manipulating it into funky jewelry using fire, hammers and other tools is just too much fun.

I’ve been working on some new metal designs, the first of which I’d like to introduce to you today. Meet the Funky Copper Bib Statement Necklace and Earring Set.

I made the necklace using a sheet of copper. After several rounds of heating, folding, hammering, and unfolding the metal, I ended up with this funky checker-board design.

Want me? Give me a click.Once I had the shape I wanted, I colored parts of the metal in royal-blue hues to emphasize the checker board structure. To complete the design, I added gorgeous copper chain.

Want us? Give us a click.For the earrings, I used pieces of the same copper chain and added royal-blue howlite chips to match the color in the bib.

I think the finished result has both bohemian and steampunk vibes. What do you think?
