Embossing Again

About this design:

I get a kick (!) out of using the Sizzix Big Kick machine. All the pretty patterns!

I think the cherry blossom is my favorite. If you squint and look at it, you see the light thru the leaves. On Brass.

The other bracelet is on copper - waves & dots, and riveted Vintaj brass connector pieces (LB).

And because we are not done with SNOW yet, and winter, the earrings with snow flakes of light pink and purple patina on copper. Rose gold colored findings.

    Cindy, These are just great! I love the earrings–the purple & lavender on copper is a wonderful combination. After you patina these beautiful pieces, do you coat them with a gloss finish to protect them? Wonderfully done! :)

    The main photo of these bracelets – I can’t get over it – the artistic wire work you did. Did you make the flowers ‘n leaves? I mean cut them out?
    and they are soldered, not glued ….? I admire skilled work like this, but I’m past getting into it.
