|UFO Suncatcher - 5-6" across.|
The suncatcher is about 6 inches across. Miniaturizing it changes the way I put it together, so I set about making a sample out of copper. Below is my second try - I didn't wire the beads on the sample, but gave her options because she mentioned wanting it multicolored.

In the end, she chose sterling silver and Swarovski bicone crystals in a couple colors. The final pendant size is just over 1 inch across, and includes shoulders and a neck (versus the floating head above.....).

I had a lot of fun making this piece - custom work is my favorite because I get to create something unique from another person's vision. It can be quite a challenge - but I love it!

What I need now is a better way to take photos of metals - it can be difficult to get good color and clarity when photographing copper and silver - especially when they are shiny!
