New Copper Dog Bone Jewelry at For Love of a Dog

I love wearing my dog bone jewelry because it starts so many conversations about my favorite subject:  my dogs.  

You thought I was going to say my jewelry, didn't you?

Nope.  I'd much rather talk about Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie.  Though I surely don't mind talking about For Love of a Dog.  Especially when I've just finished some bracelets like these.

Each feature a sweet handmade flamed copper dog bones.  Did you know that when copper is heat treated you get some amazing colors?  Some tend to be more pink and rose;  all remind me of spectacular sunsets.

In this bracelet (shown below) the copper dog bone still has lots of gorgeous orange, combined with hot raspberry pinks.  I decided to "go with it" and added some tart pink fat crystal rondelles and some amazing lampwork beads.  I'm personally crazy for the orange based with raised pink rosees and little green leaves.  Then there's the sweet raised pink flowers on orange.and the glass encased orange and pink rosebud bumpy bead.  Hard to pick a favorite.

I hand wire wrapped all these beads together with copper jeweler's wire.  This baby just called out for some bling!  Had to had some sparkling pink crystal dangle beads.  Not enough, so then I added some Czech glass dangle beads in chartreuse green and hot, hot orange.  To finish it all off, I added a little natural carnelian gemstone heart.

The copper dog bone in the bracelet below certainly picked up all the wonderful pinks.  So I complemented it with a fun frolic of a combinating of rose pink lampwork beads and fat crystal rondelle beads.  Raised flowers, stripes, polka dots, and even a cool bumpy bead.  Sparkling crystal dangles, too, along with a cute little green and rose pink unakite gemstone heart at the clasp.

Did somebody say rose pink?  That's what this yummy bling (below) is all about.  Lots of rose pink crystals, plus two handmade wedding cake glass beads surround the copper dog bone.  Catch that dreamy fancy jasper heart dangle?  I love it!

You'll find more copper dog bone jewelry at For Love of a Dog, plus dog bones in all sorts of shapes, sizes and mediums.  Just remember, that though you might see some variations on a theme...  my dog lover jewelry pieces are one of a kind.
