Oxidized copper and pearls
I went to a bead show several months ago. I don't get to do that much, as I live in the boondocks, so I do most of my bead buying online. It's so much fun to look at actual beads. Anyway, I saw these dark stick pearls, and thought how great it would be to mix them in with my oxidized copper tubes. They've been sitting in a bag for a while, but I finally got it done and I like the result.
Another thing that I liked here was the photography. 2 things I did differently: I used a flash, which I usually don't do, but it lightened the shadows alot. Also I took the picture from a very shallow angle, which brought out the 3-dimensional-ness of the piece.
