shadowboxes from C Koop beads. You can see mine toward the upper right hand corner.
Lorelei Eutro held a fun shadowbox challenge for lucky blog readers. Of course when my shadowbox arrived I procrastinated. It was a rectangle with colors ranging from plum to lavender. That stumped me for a while, but the beautiful copper underneath the purples got me in the end!
I had some lampwork beads that I got at Another Bead Please in my old neighborhood in Ahwatukee, Phoenix, AZ. That added some white and blue to the mix. For the shadowbox, I added a British stamp from the 1960s and dangled a key that I found.
I don't usually mix metals, but I think the brass is sufficiently aged that if works with the copper. And the copper chain is not too bright. I cannot wait to order some more of these shadowboxes and make some bracelets!
Thanks for the great challenge, Lorelei!
