Wrapping things up

I've completed another fun swap over at ArtCharms yahoo group. This time we are doing wired wrapped. This has been a fun but challenging swap. The one rule we had other than the basic charm making rules. If you choose to use another element, it can not out shine your wire wrapping. Boy.. When I signed up for this I knew exactly what I wanted to do and also a bead I wanted to use.
Since I love copper, my metal of choice. Awhile back I found these small faceted beads that are a light purple in tone with a iridescent copper shadowing part of the bead. When I saw them I knew they would look great with some copper wire wrap.
These will be making there way to our hostess.
