Here's a little picture story about a box of furnace hardware I bought at the flea market.



Bought this stuff on a whim'


These copper squiggles stood out from the crowd.



After a little wire brushing and some beads, don't we look purdy?

So cool ~ Or should I say "hot" since they are furnace parts?   Cheesy
Regardless, it is an awesome upcycle!
