Mariah Wheeler "Shapely Vertigris" at the Joyful Jewel 2-4-14

"A Shapely Verdigris" necklace
Mariah Wheeler
Copper with Sterling Silver Bail

It has been such fun for me to work with the copper to make interesting shapes and to add curves for dimension.  Except for the one shape I made to look like a tooth for my dentist (Laura Barringer), I am just playing with shape and form, giving no thought to a name for the form.  When I finish doing this sometimes the piece will show itself to a patron and she will tell me what it is.  This one I have decided, on my own, looks like a sexy evening dress.  The green patina covers part of the dress (the strategic parts), but the rest reveals the naked copper beneath.  Pretty sexy don't you think?  Must be time to think about Valentine's Day!
