Egyptian Coil Bracelet with Patina



I couldn't help it, I just had to see what it would look like with a patina. I think I'll polish it a bit more, but so far I have mixed feelings. What version do you like better?

Hi,
It is beautiful both ways, you'll have to make another and leave it shiny:)...I love the clasp you used, it really makes the bracelet! Do you have a tumbler? Tumbling oxidized (or any) metal jewelry with put a polish on it like you wouldn't believe!

Tumbling oxidized or any metal jewelry gives it a polish you won't believe-I was tumbling eveything when I got mine, and amazed at what it could do!

When you first talked about oxidizing I was think "NO". But I really like. It's hot both ways. The clasp doesn't over power it just fits. You did such a great job.

Be Safe...

I like the patina version better. I think it gives it a more "old Egyptian piece" feel, like it was a piece found in some tomb. :) They both are beautiful.

Thank you everyone! Kristie, a tumbler is on my wish list, I think I'll have one by this fall sometime!
