I was one of the lucky ten selected to play with patina for this hop by Kathy of BayMoonDesign and first off, I really want to thank her. I have had some patinas sitting in a drawer but this hop encouraged me to dig them out and play. I did have a couple issues in the design process such as almost constant headaches (I have new glasses on the way) and managing to break one of the little tongs so I had to switch from the idea of a bracelet to one of a necklace.
I really think that those glitches contributed towards this design that I am very happy with. Once I had patinaed the focal it really reminded me of something found under the sea so I went with that using silk that has the blue & turquoise colors of the sea and glass pearls from ZNet. The silk continues around to the clasp which makes this necklace a delight to wear.
Now that you have seen my humble offering, be sure to check out what everyone else has done with their patinaed piece.
