Copper jewelry

I picked up a beautifully wrapped petoskey on my trip up north this summer, and immediately set out on a mission to find a piece of beach glass to pair it with. I picked up a number of interesting stones which should inspire some crafting (eventually). As soon as I had a free moment back home, I was off to the bead store. I just received a great pair of copper earrings (7th anniversary), so I picked up some copper chain and wire, and a sterling clasp. After a few test wraps, I decided to pair the petoskey pendant with a small piece of blue beach glass. I hammered the copper wire prior to wrapping which I think gives it a classier look.
