If it is shiny, twinkly or tinkly, then I like it. I've really taken a shine (pun intended) to all things copper and have been gathering copper stuff for my studio. During the studio building process, I collected all the scraps of electrical wire and stripped off the plastic insulation. The result is a ton, well, maybe 10 pounds, of copper wire to make cool things with.
I bought these gold-plated silver U.S. presidents (that's Harry Truman on the right) spoons at a 2nd hand shop - cheap, with the idea of making a wind chime with some of the copper wire. After adding some sparkly crystal beads, it looks great hanging in front of the window, and has a beautiful musical tinkle.
Bobi has promised to give me some guidance in making a 3-dimensional wall art thingy with the 9.99 pounds of copper wire left over.
