So, do any of you sell at 1000 markets or Ruby? Do any of you sell to local shops? Once again, advice is greatly appreciated.
Here's the pieces that were oxidized. I only left them in the LOS for a minute or two so the patina was kinda light. I scrubbed them with steel wool and then hand polished them. This is definitely a trial and error procedure. I would like to create a deeper patina next time and try to figure out the best way to situate the lighting when taking pictures to bring out the shine. They will go in the Etsy shop today and you're likely to see more of this type of work from me since these were so much fun to make.
Before and After LOS
I'm currently working on my entry for the Art Bead Scene August challenge. It should be done by tomorrow so I'll show you what I came up with. Please check out Ester's creation on the Mes illusions baroques blog. This lady is amazing! Check out her fiber bracelets on her blog as well. I am in love with these!
Well, on a personal note, my friend is on her cruise and there is a hurricane headed that way. I'm a bit worried for her but I'm sure those big cruise ships know how to handle crazy weather. I hope she's safe and still having a marvelous time!
