Copper and Brass ("and bears. Oh My!")

I'm trying to learn to love alternative metals. (God help me!) 

I did a show in Chapel Hill (NC) last weekend.   Even with the price of silver declining somewhat, I had decided to make some alternative metal pieces -- that is -- non-silver. One of these pieces, the bracelet pictured here (copper washers, brass jump rings, brass filigree and an inch of copper tubing), was the first thing that sold.  I was pleased with my sales -- 3 times my entry fee plus food for two at the show.  BUT, didn’t sell a single silver piece.  Hmm…….

Actually, I'm very taken with this bracelet and will design more in this line, but it is somewhat of a  departure from what I have been doing.
