This was one of my favorite pieces that I exhibited at Capricon's art show: An asymmetrical choker featuring a repurposed copper stamping with copper chain and wire wrapped glass and stone beads. While it didn't go to the live auction, it did sell during the show.
Incidentally, the name comes from a former copper mining community in the upper peninsula of Michigan. Stormdog and I stopped there for pasties and junk shop exploring when we were in the Keweenaw this past July (He was up there photographing abandoned mining ruins).
