Ten Days of Giveaways: Day Two: House and Copper Mix

 I've had a busy day in the studio today, which included lots of glazing and a Raku firing that produced the pieces above.  They just happen to be part of today's Giveaway prize!  I stole a peek at the answers from yesterday's giveaway about what your favorite metals are and was surprised to see so many people who answered copper as a favorite.  I guess I shouldn't be surprised, as it is one of my favorites too.  So I decided to giveaway this coppery Raku house and accent links and a big pile of copper from my bead collection.  There's some chain, some mesh wire, beads, and charms in bright copper and dark copper and shades in-between!  I hope you like it, copper lovers!
To win today's prize, leave a comment on the Earthenwood Studio Chronicles blog and answer this question: 

A little trivia for you, so you have to go and look things up, hehe!  I'm putting your high school chemistry to the test... What is the atomic number for copper on the periodic table?

One winner will be chosen at random from all the comments. All winners will be chosen and posted to the blog on June 15th, so be sure to check back then. You must respond to the June 15th winner post and follow the directions to claim your prize within one week of the posting.  After a week, I reserve the right to choose another winner.  Good luck and thanks for commenting!

  39. melanie,

    i said in yesterday's answer i put silver and copper. so i thought it was only right i should
    give both answers.here goes:copper on the chart is Cu and it's number is 29, silver on the chat is AG and it's number is 47. i also like aluminum which is Al and it's number is 13...i don't just like one,so i gave answers to my 3 favorites...
    i really like the new beads and pendants, i think the main reason i like your work is because you aren't afraid to step out of the box.alot of artist's don't do that,but you just go with what your feeling,and that i really like. it's given me inspiration to go my own way with my beading..thanks again...
    lol,

  51. Oh crap. This isn't even high school chem - I had it in the fall in college, too. It's... in the 40's? 49 is the first number that springs to mind, but I'm pretty sure that isn't right. Something 9? It definitely ends in a 9.
