This week's Oldies but Goodies Theme Challenge is PATINA (oxidized and other). The challenge is to post something that includes PATINA.
Go through your stash and post a picture in this thread, that pertains to the theme. It can be something you made yesterday or something you made 5 years ago. We encourage you to post as many items as you want. Can't make it much simpler.
We hope to see lots of creative pics of your pieces that include PATINA.
At the end of the challenge Cat will make a collage from the entries (at least one picture from each member) and post it on her blog to share what a talented crowd this is! She will link back to your shop, blog or other pages from your signature. If you don't want your piece/s to be included, please note that in your post.
We'd love to have more members participate in this easy, fun challenge. Won't you join us?
I used to create Jewelry with Turquoise Patina, but somehow gave it up. On the other hand I use Black patina (Oxide soloution) on many of my Sterling Silver pieces, because they help to accentuate the nicer parts of the jewelry, and also gives them, to my mind, more character.

Irith, I love your patina pieces. I don't think you ever have to worry about your work not having character. Your work is so unique and full of character. The verdigris is beautiful. You should incorporate some of it in your designs. Of course, I have a thing for verdigris.
Dawn, my hand is not light at all, I actually still use the egg method instead of LOS. It usually gets me exactly the shade I prefer. A friend and fellow jewelry maker recommended a layer of shellac to protect the color, so I'm using that now.

I think I have several, I have a copper wire bangle from bare copper wire, I bet it is now a very nice colour. I also have a copper ring that tarnished over time where only the parts that got rubbed a lot had a very nice shine.
I have no photos of those and honestly, I have no idea in what box they are.
