A Give-Away

This is 14 gauge copper, measured, cut, filed, shaped, soldered, pickled, cleaned, hammered, tumbled, treated with chestnut patina, then pounced with a mica powder, sealed in satin lacquer and rubbed with preservation wax. The toggle is created specifically for this leaf shape (ie; it ain't coming apart when you bend over) and treated with the same patina coloring. The section of Chestnut chain is approximately 6" and perfect for pairing with beads of your choosing!

No hoop jumping for this one, just leave your comment and make sure you have a blog I can link to. I will draw a random number next Wed. on the 29th and we shall do a little happy dance over the internet together.

  23. You know what makes this even more awesomer? The fact that you go through ALL THAT to make this pick-my-chin-up-off-the-floor-sop-up-the-puddle-o'-drool-off-the-'puter loveliness. It is so effortless looking but I know it is a heap o' work and you do it so well.

    Count me in.

    Enjoy the day!
