Copper Clay Jewelry

I tried copper clay for the first time yesterday and I was very pleased with the results.  I used the "copper clay" brand. I fired them at 1700 for 3 hours in the stainless steel pan with the coconut charcoal.  I followed the instructions that came with the clay and it worked out fine.  Except for this one thing.

This morning while working with this piece, the dragon fly circle fell off the base!  I think they copper paste I made was not thick enough.  So, now I have to find out if I can refire after repasting the pieces together.  I was soooooo tempted to superglue the pieces!  LOL

Today I made this bracelet, and this necklace from my copper pieces.  Plan to make earrings with the leaf squares and a pendant with the dragon fly when I figure out how to fix it.

Happy Sunday all!  Enjoy a creative day!
