About this design:

Used the verdiris patina kit on some filigree beads. I've been playing with the inks and finally figured out how to get the look I want.

Components:

Pewter plateted filigree round, Variscite, Czech Fire Polished Glass, brass chain, brass bead caps

    Oh how pretty! These have an exotic and unique look,but they’re still light and summery looking.
    I really like the brass caps against the Variscite.
