A crush on copper, and a new knot

My latest crush … copper.  I just love these images above, all from Pinterest.  I’ve started a new Pinterest board called Colour Crush – Copper in case you were interested in keeping up with my finds.  Or noticing how much time I spend on Pinterest.  Oops!  I especially love the combination of copper with those dark brooding charcoals and navy and how about that teal combo at the top!  Gorgeous!

My interest has peaked recently as I’ve begun to use copper in some of my newest pieces.  I love that it’s very industrial, and requires new tools and a couple of phone calls to my builder Dad and brother for advice along the way!   Anyone following along on Instagram would have seen something new emerge last week and anyone who came along and saw me at Markit Fed Square on the weekend might have noticed, too … before they sold out!  I’ve created these new necklaces, featuring nautical knots (hello, sailor!) and copper beads on leather.  The knots are actually viking merchant knots which sits completely at ease with my other obsessions at the moment, both TV shows:  Vikings; and Game of Thrones.  Oh my I love these shows!  #winteriscoming

So it’s a good thing I have a new crush because guess what I’ll be frantically making this week?  About a million new necklaces to list online and take with me to Finders Keepers in Sydney soon!
