Ranger Vintaj Patina Play

Here’s what is on my work bench for Bead Table Wednesday. I picked up some Vintaj (Ranger) Patinas several weeks ago, but just now had a few spare moments to play.

Wednesday, August 31, 2011- BTW

Several weeks ago, the talented artist and jewelry designer Birgitta Lejonklou and I made contact via one of the flickr groups we both belong to.

As promised, a photo of the micro macrame bezel that I have been working on for some time. I finally figured out how to get it to work and look smooth. The fun part of this technique is working on tying in all the loose cords. The stone, (some type of dyed bone or coral … Continue reading »
