Strawberries!

These cute little strawberries were crocheted out of fine copper wire, one red and one purple. Their tops are cut from copper sheet that once lived life as a boiler. For the red one I thought it might be interesting to try and turn the copper green, so with a little bit of salt, vinegar, sunlight and patience, I managed to get it a little green, then sealed it so it wouldn’t rub off.
