Only one more pair to go! Patinated copper and lampwork glass this time.

#51 Aged Spirals

I got out the heftier copper wire and made a pair of hammered spirals with two of my lampwork glass beads on them. The beads have a mix of green frit on a misty translucent background. I made big rounded earwires, put them in liver of sulphur to patinate until black, then tumbled them for a bit for a gunmetal finish before giving the surfaces a quick going-over with a sanding sponge to bring back a little copper.
