Mostly, the only time I use patina is to bring out details on things that I have stamped (I use Liver of Sulfur gel and I really hate the smell) but lately I have all of these ideas for oxidized pieces. Here are a few things I made this weekend. I had planned on oxidizing all of the silver pieces but I chickened out...I couldn't resist a few shiny Silver pieces!
And this bracelet...yeah, this one is for me. I am not keeping it because I love it so much, I am keeping it because I made it to small and this thing isn't coming off of my wrist. I do love it though! I wear it with my set of Gold bangles.
I can't wait until I have some time to work on some more new things. I think the gunmetal patina would look really cool on Men's pieces.
