Copper Metal Etched Necklace

I decided to use this Copper etched piece from yesterdays post as a backing for an Angelina Film and Opals embossing enamel necklace.It was thin Copper shim and I really used it as a experiment while I sussed out the etching process.It's the size of a microscope glass slide and fitted perfectly in a Memory Glass frame.
This is the Angelina Film and Opals stamped side.Its far prettier in real life.


and the Copper etched piece from above with some Pinata ink colour on it.If I had used thicker copper I would have sanded it back again to make the Copper colour stand out but I was afraid I would sand a hole in it.Hence the "trust" word...another reminder to self as I am plagued by self doubt....as alot of us are when we really do not need to be.

I hope to get to the second necklace tomorrow.I'm thinking I shall see which one my friend wants of the two and give away the other.Hey I just realized I have passed the 100 posts mark so maybe a blog give away is nigh :o)

Looks like I'm first to comment again Annette.
I love that you etched copper shim. I was worried that it would be too thin. The pendants are beautiful. I must play some more.

As always, I think your work is stunning! Of course I just love the colors you get with the film & opal - why can't mine ever look so good?? :D
