As much as I like random texture and pattern, I'm also drawn to repetition. There is something really tidy about a pattern that continues through a piece of metal or glass. I have several images from Hally's blog pinned to my Art/Inspiration board on Pinterest - when I look at these pictures the repeating pattern is what I notice first.I made this pair of earrings using the hydraulic press and a diamond pattern die to try to mimic that fence pattern in copper earrings. I like the little points it added - they look a little bit sharp but they aren't. And the pattern looks really cool from the front or the back - I had trouble deciding which side should face out.

And of course it seems like lately I can't make anything in copper without adding a heat patina...
