Copper/Brass with glass

Good Day to ya
Christmas coming on fast now I best keep to many tasks
Many gift to create.

Today the design is carried out from the form I can see in the glass

I find copper a very pretty metal. I had to use these bad boys to close the links for the strength of the brass is very substantial.
This is a technique that I enjoy called rosary work.
Only this is on a large scale.
The delicacy of most rosary work uses fine linking.
I snipped off the eye pin and then formed a larger eye to accommodate the brass ring.

The set is still in the creative phase.
