Copper Craze (Blog Poll Alert)

Hi, all. Jay's sister Laura here. (Some of you may know me by the pseudonym Jaimey Grant.) I just wanted to share what Jay's been working on lately and introduce a blog poll.

It seems that copper jewelry has been gaining popularity. Jay has been playing with some ideas and experimenting with copper wire. To the left is a necklace made entirely of handmade copper jumprings, a bracelet of dyed freshwater pearls on handmade copper links, a ring of twisted copper wire, and a rough-cut amethyst wrapped in copper wire with a twisted bail. Below and to the right is a copper collar made entirely of handmade jumprings; the design is loosely based on European chainmaille.

We want your opinions on the matter. Please look to the right sidebar and answer the following question. Would you like to see copper jewelry added to the catalog at JaysDesign Jewelry?

If you have something additional you'd like to add, perhaps the reason for your selection, feel free to comment to this post.

Be sure to check out what's already in Jay's store: JaysDesign on Etsy.

I love the warmth and earthy feel of copper and create about half of my pieces in copper. If you are looking for inspiration you might like to take a look at http://copperwirejewelers.ning.com So many talented artists, all working in copper and other alternative metals.
