Sometimes it is just fun to do something that is outside your usual style.
A friend and I decided to try to make some things with a decidedly grubbier and darker look.
It involved a lot of JAX Pewter Black.
I used it to age some chains, focals, and beads.
And this Archaeology necklace was born.
Glass and polymer beads were combined into this fun necklace.
The smashed bottle cap with a map covered in resin looked so much better after it was painted with JAX.
Now I love it.
It was in my failures pile so I figured nothing ventured, nothing gained...
What a gain...
I made links for each of my beads and then dipped them in Jax.
They all got rubbed with wax and buffed.
The fiber piece was made from a bit of a muslin sheet.
I dipped it in watered down black paint and then waxed it.
And those little twisted wire jump rings...
I made them...
Now THAT was fun!
I thoroughly enjoyed trying a new look.
I will be doing more of this style for sure...
What have you tried that was new for you?
Thanks for stopping by...
