I’ve always loved transforming something humble like a found object into a piece of jewelry, but my obsession hit a peak recently when I started working with patinas.
I used the Swellegant line of patinas and dyes to transform an ugly component from an old necklace into these earrings.I added some beads and handformed brass coils and voila! – a brand new set of ancient earrings.
