One of the newest trends in accessories- purse charms! Another great way to express your style--add to your favorite purse or backpack, use as a zipper pull or fan pull, lots of options here!
I just love the idea and decided to begin creating a few designs, in an earthy style of course!
LEFT: This earthy green charm is about 5"
in length. I started with a heavy gauge copper wire, and made a hammered textured spiral coil at the bottom. Assorted beads in green and brown tones were added along with some jump rings for embellishment. The charm was finished by wire wrapping copper the entire length. A large lobster claw clasp was added at the top for attaching to your purse.
Ususally I give my copper a dip in Liver of Sulfur for a finishing patina but I liked this one just as is!
