hand cut and hammered copper "wing" charm

these were another experiment! I just love the look of metal jewelry. Again with no experience or time to take a class, i decided to play and see if i could come up with something acceptable. I first cut the tag shapes from a sheet of craft copper i had that i use for pin backs when i make my shadow box soldered pins. sanded the edges and corners, hmmered them to make them rustic looking, punched holes..i now knowi seriously need a cropodile if i am going to be punching any more metal. then i inserted the eyelets n then punched to word "wing" into each. then i aged them a bit with alcohol inks and to highlight the words..
