About This Project:
Create Faux Patina effects on metal and then create a beaded focal with your creation! This class will be in two parts - first we'll spend some time playing and creating a faux patina on a metal stamping. This is fun and easy to do and each one is unique. Then you’ll bezel your crystal and do a small bit of back stitch, some couching for the cup chain, and a picot edging around our new creation. You can then turn the project into any number of things: A pendant as shown in the photo by adding a simple bail to the back, or a broach or shawl pin, or even the centerpiece of a bracelet or larger design of your choosing. I'm certain you will love this fun technique as much as I do! And we'll be sure to have some extra metal stains and decorative metal blanks on hand for purchase once you become hooked!
