Sometimes the supplies for my Etsy "Teapots & Telephones" shop need some assembling, adjusting, or tweaking before I can list them. I have been busy doing precisely those things lately.
First, I oxidized some pretty little vintage brass cage beads that arrived to me an unappealing shade of brassy copper, and inserted some glass pearls of various colors.
I oxidized some brass button shank findings, and set beautiful vintage glass rhinestones into them, to make some unique and special buttons.
And finally I oxidized some Indian brass beads that came to me such a bright and awful shade of gold I almost sent them back. But now look at them!
