This year in Tucson, I bought lots of Bronze pieces and parts. Historically, Ive been a sterling silver girl. I have only used silver, gold or found objects in my work, but due to the skyrocketing price of silver, I have had to rethink some of my designs. I will continue to use sterling silver, because I love it, but I need an alternative.
So I have spent part of the day trying to patina some of the Bronze pieces I picked up in Tucson. I'm pretty happy with the way they are turning out.
