Well, I finished my first piece. I tired to combine brass and copper in one piece, but it just never was right, so I went with all brass so I could use my pretty focal and links. After working and reworking, I finally am satisfied with the way it turned out. Now on to the next piece since I haven't used the copper clasp yet (the rules say I have to use the focal and clasp). I already have some ideas...stay tuned. My reveal date is April 14, I think.
