Copper is lovely to work with and to wear. I use both non-tarnish copper wire, which stays a bright copper colour, and bare copper wire, which can be left bright or antiqued. Once a patina has been applied, areas of a weave can be cleaned and therefore brightened which enhances the texture.

The copper weaving embellishes a lovely turquoise donut.
