In the meantime, I've been dabbling a little. I'm actually making an attempt at a complete bracelet, simple as it may be. I'm quite excited about how it's looking so far.
What you see there is ~2.5" of sterling silver and copper 4mm jump rings: 2 rings of silver in each silver link and 3 rings of copper in each copper link. I can't wait till it's finished.
The only thing holding my back right now is a lack of silver rings. I ran out :O Ah well, I'll have more soon and will get back to work.
