Memories captured in pewter.

I am so in love with these ❤
Memories of moonlit nights on the beach listening to the sound of the waves.

Pewter patina


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Pewter is incredibly difficult to get a patina on other than black or a rusty colour.

However, I discovered a way of colouring it and after some years I can pretty much control the colouration.

My favourite has to be rainbow coloured pewter which is something I’m refining at the moment.

Here is one of my sea inspired necklaces with a rainbow patina.

Rainbow coloured pewter.

That’s a favourite but here’s a few more.

Darren Jones and Chrystine Jones. Rainbow copper .

So on a wet and windy May day in the studio I started making my own rainbows.

Using Liver of Sulphur I created some gorgeous colours on some copper jewellery.

I was very happy with the results. I love coloured metal.

Darren had been working with enamels on copper and on some spare pieces he had a go at flame colouring on copper.

The results are amazing

I think I got beat hands down.

I love these!

I think there’s going to be some really pretty stuff in the studio this summer.
