Getting my copper on

I have been making etched copper for a little over a year now and I have been selling most of what I have made.
I thought I would start using some in my jewelry designs because the reason I started making etched copper in the first place was to use in my jewelry.
Here are a few pieces I have made recently.


Made this one last night. I think it is a great short necklace. 
I used a pendant from Nancy Schindler, my etched copper and Czech glass beads.


Most of the rest of these I have shared already but thought you might like to see them again :-)

and here is my daughter playing with her Easter tree at the beading table...


The Easter tree, which she promptly ripped the eggs off of and filled with etched copper earrings :-)

Shannon your etched pieces are awesome and love how you used them in your necklaces. I especially love the one you made last night!!! Happy Easter!

I love your etched pieces, especially the key one. Is it hard to learn to etch copper? I've been wanting to try, but the chemicals seem so dangerous. Glad your daughter is feeling better.

You are a stronger woman than me. I would want to use everything I made if I could make such awesome pieces. I love short necklaces so the one you just made is super cool. How cute that your daughter is following in your footsteps.

Hi Shannon,
I love your copper etchings they are so sweet. I really like the short necklace you made the other night. Your daughter is a cutie and I think the tree looks better with the earrings on it.
Happy Easter

I love that little mushroom so much!

Everything is beautiful, I found you while looking at a post by Tara Gentile about pricing for jewelry and what she says yours is worth, when I opened the link I though : " YES every penny"

Keep up the beautiful work!
