Patina


About this design:

I had a few pieces of Turquoise impression jasper that were too coppery brown to use in another piece I designed. So I put them with copper chain that I patina-ed and other beads that were the color of patina-ed copper. I made both an amazonite pair of earring and a fluorite pair of earring. Second picture show the piece made from the rest of the turquoise impression jasper

Components:

Turquoise impression Jasper, Amazonite, blue green fluorite, teal fresh water pearls,cooper chain and toggles.
