Peace Connection

About this design:

Custom piece created for a customer. She wanted something in similar colors to a necklace I'd made previously, with a feminine cross charm. I hand patinated the cross with Vintaj Patina and topped it with Vintaj Glaze mixed with Gold PearlEx. The connector is a Vintaj Artisan Copper Blank with an extra hole punched, and hand stamped with the word "Peace," which has been colored with Amethyst color Vintaj Patina.


Lepidolite, Amethyst, Purple Candy Jade, Vintaj Artisan Copper 20 gauge wire, Copper Jump rings, Copper Eye pins, Copper Toggle, Copper Cones

    We’ve done card stamping and I agree fully that it is tedious, too. Right now can’t afford to do metal blank stamping.

    LOVE this bracelet . . . temp[ted to steal the idea for inspiration, because i can imagine it as a beautiful necklace, too. Impressive!!!!
