Copper and Blue

First, I would like to thank all the BSBP family for their comments on the pieces I made from the soup Ginger sent, it is so gratifying to be part of a large family of like minded, extremely talented artists. I have such a swelled head from all the wonderful praise I received.  I hope I didn't miss anyone when I did the hop, if I did miss anyone please accept this as praise for an exceptional job by all. This was such an incredible experience it is quite indescribable. Last reveal is just a few days away and I find I am just as excited this time as the last two to see what's been created.

I just finished my pieces for the August Challenge from Operation Tackle that Stash.  I haven't often worked in copper but found that when paired with royal blue, it is quite striking. I had purchased the focal sometime ago and knew that someday it would take center stage. This was the perfect challenge for this piece. The necklace was made using dyed fresh water pearls, brilliant blue swarovski crystals, copper spacers  and clasp and copper seed beads.

The earrings are made with some beautiful copper leaves, copper findings and dyed fresh water pearls. The colors are so striking they are hard to miss. Hope you enjoy!



  1. Wow, I don't know how you do. Each time I'm more amazed. This time in my all time favorite color, blue, too. It's beautiful seems you saved that stone of the perfect piece.

  2. Beautiful focal stone! And I love this color combination - perfect to transition from summer to fall. I would wear those earrings every day!

  3. Gorgeous pieces! I love the way you framed the stone -- your design added to the drama and beauty of the focal without overwhelming it. :)

  4. Hi Kepi,
    Wow I love the bright beautiful blue of the pearls, crystals, and the awesome focal with the copper in the necklace it is gorgeous! I love the earrings too.

  5. Kepi - this is absolutely STUNNING!!! I love how perfectly the earrings match too without being 'matchy-matchy'!!!! Great work!
