Though I haven't worn one in years, I found the locket in the bargain bin and decided it would be fun to make a necklace with it. My favorite metal lately: antique copper! Doorhandles, jewelry, keys, clocks, curtain rods, pots and pans ... all are especially beautiful when found in antique copper. I use it ALL THE TIME in my scrapbooking (brads, hinges, photo clips and such) but I am recently a fan of wearing it as well. At first I was resistant because I wanted all of my jewelry to match my wedding ring (white gold), but have since decided that maybe I try to match too much. So I have a few antique copper projects in the work.
