Still loving this metal stuff

I don't think I could ever get tired of using copper. I love the way it looks after being fired with a torch. My friend Donna Gunn at has taught the bracelet class using the copper metal. I loved the way it looked and thought it would make a great cover for a Journal Book. We get together about one day a month for our fix "Art Day" and this is what I made. Of course I had to make a bracelet too. I love copper not just for the way it looks, but it's also a healing metal. I find that when my Carpal tunnel flares up I just put on my bracelet and the pain goes away. Try one and see. Maybe it's just me, but if the pain goes away I'm gonna wear it.

My latest Journal Book……didn't last long already gone! But I did get a great deal for it. I love when I can barter, and that's what I did with my first fabric journal book. I used a lot of vintage fabric and the heart…. I cut up silk, crush velvet, ribbon and glued it on to some stiff fabric. I used a vintage button and an old key to lock and hold all your secrets in. For the binding I used delicate sheer lace.
