Copper wire and a blowtorch


I treated myself to a copy of  Metal-Embellishments with Mary Hettmansperger it took ages to come but was worth waiting for.  I have Marys book Fabulous Woven jewellry and love her work but watching her demonstrating is so much easier. 
I was inspired to get out my copper wire and the blow torch.  My little copper piece is sitting on hand dyed wool felt from Oliver Twists and once embellished a bit will become the focal for a book cover. 

I am sure the pain in my little finger will go away soon, I got a bit over excited and stuck my finger in the flame of the torch.

I love the metal embellishment. I will have to look out for that book at the Festival of Quilts.
