Creative Day ~ Dragonfly in Copper!

You know, if you have been following me for a while, that I love working in Copper! It is so flexible and forgiving. It can be shaped, cut, melted, formed into almost anything. I just love it!

  "Pure copper is soft and malleable; a freshly exposed surface has a reddish-orange color."
And "In volume, copper is the third most recycled metal after iron and aluminum." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper)



This project is an extension of the dragonfly in copper as I have given it color with tiny Delica seed beads and larger beads

It was a fun experiment in color and I think it came out rather well.
I did use 20g and 28g wrapping  copper wire in this little guy. I also used a baroque peacock fresh water pearl and a hematite bead for the body.

Here is the final piece. I know there will be more friends of like him made. Look on the site for the ones we will have up for sale!

wish this was clearer, but I can see the pops of color still!








This was a fast hour project that I know I will do again and again! I will credit the copper designer when I find the photos again.

Enjoy your week!  SOLD!
May God's Blessings be upon you!

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
