The Color Drenched Metal Tutorial is now ready!

Yay!
It is finally finished!


The Hook;
  Whether you are a jewelry designer creating with pre-formed elements or a metal worker forging your own components, chances are that if this tutorial caught your attention, you are attracted to the unique, the ancient, and the rustic.
 Creating a design that looks as if it was machine produced; perfectly formed, shiny, and identical to everybody elses', is not for you. You need something that appeals to your spirit of authenticity, something that sets your designs apart, something that tells your customers of your connection to the past, your eye on modern design, and your skill in creating beautiful one of a kind accessories.

Want one?
They are here.

I am really excited to share what I have learned with patina application and the feedback I have gotten from friends who tested the tutorial has been phenomenal!

I am always available for questions (just give me 2 to 3 days to get back to you) so you are not left out in the cold if something is unclear to you.

Videos that focus on patina-ted chain are in the works as are hands on workshops, the project book and live chats.
(sleep overs, pillow fights and snacks would really round this out, wouldn't it?)
Thank you for letting me share what has held me in the grip of impassioned experimentation for the last year and a half.

Here is to furthering our personal jewelry journeys!

  5. Your expertise is incredible! Eye-catching colors on your title page (or whatever it's properly called)! IF I were 10 or 20 years younger and had a workshop, I would be right into it! Meanwhile, I'm depending on you to supply those gorgeous, "out_of-the-past" metals. You are sure to inspire many. Good job!! Keep creating!

  8. I bought this today! It is concise, informative in a really practical way, super easy to understand, well written, brilliantly photographed, and all around essential in assisting the reader to understand how to create these kinds of elements. The little extra tips are wonderful, and the pointers on suppliers are a real bonus. EXACTLY what you want when hoping to learn a new skill. Exceptional, Shannon! You have a true teacher's spirit and talent!

  12. "You need something that appeals to your spirit of authenticity, something that sets your designs apart, something that tells your customers of your connection to the past, your eye on modern design, and your skill in creating beautiful one of a kind accessories." I love the way you worded that! You are not only a talented designer, but a skilled wordsmith, as well.! I'll be checking into this book for sure!
