Freshly Painted New Rustic Pendants
Here are four new pieces freshly painted. My favorite is the rustic funky looking little bird in the upper corner. Next is a pendant, a bracelet focal, and a button. These pieces were created from rich dark brown Yixing clay, coated in Swellegant Brass Metal Coating, and then Patina'd with Vintaj Verdigris, Jade, and Moss. Each pieces was then sanded and hand-buffed. The bird is designed and handcrafted, not created from a stamp. The pendant, bracelet focal and the button have been created using a stamping process.
I started designing the buttons because I like to make the ladder bracelets and wanted to create a unique button. The button measures 1" in diameter.
Below is an example of a bracelet using a piece similar to the bracelet focal.
These pieces and others will be posted on Etsy at purplefishclaybeads.etsy.com
