I have spent the last couple of day working on beaded serving pieces and such. Instead of using the soldering wire for the accents, I used twisted wire with burgundy and silver (plated, copper core) to complement the glazing combo I use most often for my pottery.
I had on hand some shell beads and used them with some red/rust colored beads to decorate this serving set. The plate under is one I have in stock using my most popular glaze pattern. I like the twisted wire and it is easier to deal with than the soldering wire which scuffs easily when using needle nose pliers. I don't like the visible scratches!!!! This is a much better option.
