Here's the ammonite one for Julia to see. I've relisted the charms as well.

I'm going to wear this one constantly for a month and see how it wears, good excuse to keep it  ;)

It's very purty and unusual Jill, it has a Greco-Roman feel to me, not sure why.

I've worn it now constantly for a month as a little experiment to see how the patina changes, it's showered with me, been in the sea, washed dishes, had sun tan lotion and insect repellant as well as hand cream. Some days it's been shinyier than others, it's even been a bit green and I've been green once.
I have to say since wearing it the pains in my hands and arms has been much less, I'm sceptical it's down to the copper, more likely the warm weather but only time will tell if i keep wearing it

I've been doing lots of new work, so much so that my online presence has been meager, and I'm trying out a lot of different things, as I've been feeling somewhat frustrated and stuck in a rut. So, this is the latest, which have been in the pipeline for a while. You can't tell from the pic, but the largest is about 5.5cm long.

It's good to do new things, especially when they are this gorgeous, I bet you are feeling very pleased
