pretty in pink

This is the latest and greatest. In silver plated wire and pink opal. More of a practice piece really, I'm not so keen on the pink, a bit washed out on me. This took quite a while though, I got lots of practice with wired loops, closed and open. It started to feel a bit like whittling after a while.

I think I want to do this piece again in turquoise with oxidised silver. Possibly even in red jasper and turquoise. But I will need to oxidise the silver (plated) wire pieces first - can't do it after as turquoise is a bit fragile (doesn't like heat or chemicals, soft, porous). I think I will also need to let my fingers heal first too, after bending all those closed loops...
