It has been foggy for a week now....


But I had a few pictures taken from a few months ago of the new patinated components I have been working on. There is a ton so I will just post a few pics at a time. The above are my favorites even though I should be concentrating on PINK. and RED. I'm just not feeling it right now. Darn these creative impulses! Why can't they sync up with the retail calender?



You can mix custom colors with patina's and heat apply them for a really intense shade. It isn't a paint, it is actually bonded with the metal, isn't that exciting? There is even violet! A deep purple that sometimes has a greenish tint to it, I'll show some bangles later but here are some violet Paris Tags;



And here are some earrings I can't stop making using forged, patinated hoops;



What do ya think? Like em? Love em? Want to make some? I will list some more components when the sun shows up but don't hesitate to ask for your own colors! The bracelets below use lamp worked glass discs from Blue Seraphim.

  3. Thank you, Sara!

    Lorelei, aren't they funky? I am riveting the discs onto ring bands now but the bracelets will be in the book.
