copper, mine

Gold is great, silver is good, but copper - that's my bag. The great thing about copper is that although it has value and is considered a precious metal, there are still many that consider jewelry made from it to be costume quality. I've had some luck finding copper plated trinkets but lately, it's been slim pickings. That's why I was so happy to come across this copper bead necklace at a second hand shop for a measly $2.99 a few weeks ago. Wrapped around the wrist, it makes a killer bangle. It is so satisfying to me to find something I value so highly for such a tiny cost. That's the thrill of treasure hunting.
