HANDS-ON-HOUSTON:
Copper Wire Jewelry

September 5, 2015 at 11:00 pm

This month, join members of the Houston Metal Arts Guild (HMAG) as they teach us how to create bracelets and necklaces from copper wire. Start with a hoop of patinated (darkened) and annealed (softened) copper wire. Use pliers and mallets to form the wire into whatever shape you like. Add texture to your piece by pounding it with metal hammers, and brighten it by scrubbing with steel wool. Wear your creation as a bracelet, or string it on a leather cord to make a necklace.
