  1. I love these! I agree, all metal jewelry is perfect. I’ve been wanting to try this link, so I’ll try to figure it out. Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. I do too! They are very cool. What do you use to patina brass? I’ve tried liver of sulphur, but I don’t get a rich color.

  3. Thanks, Sharon. Hmmmm… this might be tricky for me to put in words with photos, much easier to demonstrate, but I will play around some more and see if I can simplify the steps. Thanks!

  4. Are the earwires also brass darkened with the ‘Brass Darkening Solution’? After darkening, do you buff (if so, with what) or put any coating on the brass – particularly the earwires? The color and sheen are just beautiful. However, I’m a bit concerned if these would cause a bad reaction with a person’s ears, but would like to try making my own brass earwires. Thanks!
