Copper Tones

Fall is beginning to creep into New England, and the leaves on the trees are starting to show new colors.  Here in Connecticut, we get some lovely yellows, oranges and reds.  As the season - and the leaves - fall and fade, the oak trees hold on to their leaves, and our woods are filled with copper tones well into November.
Thinking of the copper colors I like so much drew me to play with various copper shades in polymer.  Here are some of the results.
The bracelet is a set of half-lentals covered with slices from a feather cane in browns and deep copper.  The copper heishi and findings add a touch of sparkle.

 Layers of copper and complimentary shades of coral and brown went into a mokemu gane stack for these 2 pendants.  I like the contrast of the chains - one in shiny copper and the other with an antiqued copper finish.

The earrings pairs feature copper tones in a variety of places:  in the clay itself, in the pearl embellishments and even in the findings.
