Brass Hoops

Maybe is because of spending so much time on my mixed metals line.  Or maybe just because.  What ever the reason, I have been using a lot of brass lately.  I like it dark, and aged-looking, and weathered-looking, like these brass hoops.  I started with brass wire, soldered it, and then flattened the circles.  I love the tone of the brass with the pink.  I also used darkened brass headpins and wrapped the wire around the top of each bead multiple times.  I’m enjoying this brass phase that is winding into my work.
