Copper mixed media necklace

This piece has been a work in progress for a couple of weeks now. The charms are made from Tim Holtz fragments, which have been layered with paper and alcohol inks, then coated with Glossy accents. Then, on three of the charms, I added a layer of thin copper sheeting (reclaimed from inside an old VCR player). The copper is alcohol inked, embossed with letter punches (thanks Michelle for the fabulous punches) and then joined to the fragment with a Tim Holtz rivet. I added some metal washers which were coloured with the inks, and some random lengths of chain. I am really pleased with the end result, although it has taken a little while to figure out how to approach it to get what I wanted from the piece
