Antique Copper Kit AND Crystal Giveaway Winner

I picked up a couple packages of chain that were on sale at the craft store a few weeks ago and apparently lost track of them in the shuffle until today.

The name on the package is Jewelry Fundamentals and is labeled, "Antique Copper Necklace & Bracelet Kit". Included is a 22" necklace, 8" bracelet, head pins and jump rings. Looks like all I need to add are beads!

I liked the idea of the packaged kit, but my first thoughts were how can I chop this up and make a multi-strand charm bracelet?! Time to get the beads out, but I'd love to get your thoughts on the type of beads to add. I would normally go with the standard route of earthy stones with this copper chain, but I'm thinking it would be fun to try some bright, cheerful colors. What do you think?

By the way, since there were so many great comments for this month's Swarovski Crystal giveaway, I decided it made more sense to use Random.org to pick a winner.

So, it is my pleasure to announce the winner of the Swarovski Crystal 20mm Cosmic Pendant in Crystal Red Magma is Eleanor Brown who you might recognize as the maker of "Fiber Beads". Yay & congrats!

Stay tuned for the September giveaway which is practically right around the corner. :)

You can go with a stone and still be bright..I've seen work with copper and turquoise that's fabulous :)

I love pairing copper with turquoise, also. Remember...on the color wheel blues and oranges are complementary colors, so they work very well together!
