RECYCLED COPPER PIPE NECKLACE
I have a wonderful mechanic who is great at fixing cars but not so great at tossing stuff into the garbage can, he misses the mark. That is fine with me because while he works on my car, I pick up debris. This is my latest find...a soldered and cut copper pipe. It was grungy, covered in dirt and grime, plus it had been run over and over who knows how many times. I took it home cleaned it, polished it and discovered some beautiful colors under the grime. This is the result, a long necklace made from mixed metals with a smashed button xox charm.
