This time I'm showing off two pairs that feature Vintaj brass blanks that have been altered by yours truly! Both pairs feature a floral theme... I guess I'm just not quite ready to say goodbye to summer yet.
First up, a fairly simple pair that I etched, painted, and domed. I hung a tiny Czech glass flower inside the curved metal to reflect the etched pattern and to add a little more interest.
My second pair makes use of some tiny little tags that I embossed and painted at the Vintaj 2 Day Workshop that I went to last spring. I brought them home (along with some other odds and ends that were not made into finished pieces) and promptly lost them. I'm actually pretty sure that they resurfaced at least once in my workspace only to be lost again. Anyway, when I found them (again) I figured I better make something with them QUICK. I added in some leaf charms, some lucite flowers, and some chain and voila!
