On the sixth day of the handmade beads, pendants, and component exchange I received this item from Kristi Bowman of Kristi Bowman Design.
It is a large circular component made from, I think, CopprClay and is solid copper with beautiful raised designs and patina. I plan to use it as a focal of a necklace made with chain.
Kristi Bowman lives in Snohomish, Washington. She makes unique jewelry components out of metal clay. Textures are her thing. Many of her items have a rustic or primitive look to them by design. Kristi loves giving her pieces an antiqued look with patina. She sells components and jewelry in her Etsy shop. She also sells jewelry in her ArtFire shop.
