The same process as the Sea Gypsy Jewels; completely coating a piece of metal in patina and then removing it randomly with a heavy sanding drum. Adding more layers of patina for softly glowing, colorful copper beads!
I did this for charms also and will be working on several batches of these as time allows.
I have had a lost shipment of copper bring me back to the drawing board for more charm pairs, needing to cut sheet metal to new measurements.
I'm thinking of getting rough cut stones and ceramic beads then hanging the charms from them for easy, swingy earrings.
I am calling these Bounty due to the harvest colors.
But I am not waiting until Fall to add these to the shop, I have already started making earrings for Fall shows.
What are you making? Any certain color combos you are focusing on?
My hubby built box;
LOVE glued in.
So there among the little wood compartments is an assortment of the usual warm fall colors; yellow, orange and brown but I mixed in some perwinkle, sky blue, lavender and black.
Now for some etched, matte glass or stones.....
Or maybe organic shaped metal frames?
How about this bracelet, using 8mm chestnut and saffron with 12mm violet and paprika and a big verdigris roundell?
I like this one's jangle.
I have named it.....
"Welcome to my Fiesta!"
