My friend Angie asked for a piece for a dear friend, a woman who is a new follower of Jesus. She wanted it to encourage her.
Brass, copper, aluminum rivet and dyed chalcedony.
Stamped and wired and ready to send~~
It's been a day full of worship and thanking God for His Son. And an afternoon of finishing up this piece.
My wonderful husband is making me dinner~~oh yum!
Wishes for a week of productive joy for all~~and can you BELIEVE that it's the first day of April tomorrow??? My brain tells me I'm still back in mid February. :-)

Gilder's Paste! I'd been longing to play with it, and was lucky enough to participate in a bulk buy with one of my Jewelry Artist Network friends. I got 10 small containers of the paste, assorted colors.
I found that it is quite smelly and very messy. After experimenting on a few etched pieces of metal, I applied the Bronze Gilder's paste to this etched copper piece I had hanging around the bench. I used a toothpick and wore my magnifying glasses so that I wouldn't smear it everywhere!
I haven't sprayed any sealer on this piece, and I will wear it a lot and see how durable the paste is.
Experiments, Baby steps~~Bliss!
Have a blessed week all!
