Vets and Pets

Paws has a fundraiser coming up in October so its time to start making stock. Price of copper wire gauges 14 and 16 went up so will my prices. Too bad.

Here is a totally made today piece. Other than the bead which came from my never ending supply of torch bead bowl beads.

It is not as heavy as my last few, that have sold I might add, but it can hold its own. Ok then.
