Love that Patina!

by Kelli Pope


Ever find yourself struggling to be creative? When life gets hectic, and I need to focus and get jewelry made, sometimes it's difficult. That's where I find myself tonight, with a big private jewelry party pending tomorrow night. What usually gets me started is reaching for my favorite colors and materials. As you know from previous blogs, I went STRAIGHT for the turquoise and copper!!! The more rustic and earthy the better. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE all things patinated by "MissFickleMedia", Shannon LeVart. Her aqua speaks loudest to me.

This piece was created using her patinated copper with my own hand hammered components.



So, now I should be inspired..... and the creative juices flowing, right? Well, maybe a little more turquoise will do it............





Shannon's GORGEOUS patinated and painted pendant shouted out to be used .........so of course, I had to oblige with more turquoise and copper.... :)

Ok.. maybe I'm warmed up now. I should be able to move forward, think outside of the "turquoise box", and forge ahead. I think Miss Shannon's red patinated components are calling to me now........ they're going to go beautifully with beads by Mary Ann Carroll and my hammered copper.......



.......................back to the studio........



.............the need to create is calling......................
