I really had fun playing with the Vintaj Patinas to get just the right colors for my bracelet. Don't they match the dangling beads perfectly?
With Vintaj Patinas, you can add color to your brass components. Cheri used several colors mixed together to color the filigree links in this bracelet. You'll love mixing colors and applying them to highlight the beautiful details of the Vintaj filigree. Find more inspiration for using Vintaj components in your jewelry in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Apply the Vintaj Patinas in Rust, Verdigris, and Moss to a filigree. Dab the Rust color on here and there and allow to dry. Then add Verdigris and Moss individually, as well as mixed here and there. Immediately blot with a damp towel. Watch our video tutorial for applying Vintaj Patinas for more help with this technique. Reapply colors as needed. Repeat for the other two filigrees. You can also add Patinas to the bead caps you will use later for your dangles.
Connect one filigree to a Vintaj Natural Brass 9mm rib cable 15 gauge jump ring using two Vintaj Natural Brass 6mm rib cable 18 gauge jump ring. Repeat on the other side of the filigree. Attach another filigree to the 9mm jump ring on one side of the first filigree using two more 6mm jump rings. Attach a 9mm jump ring to the other side of this filigree using another two 6mm jump rings. Attach the last filigree to this 9mm jump ring using two 6mm jump rings. Attach a 9mm jump ring to the other side of the last filigree using two 6mm jump rings.
Slide a milky green Dakota Stones 4mm fancy jasper faceted round bead onto a Vintaj natural brass 1.5-inch 21 gauge head pin and make a wrapped loop at the top of the bead. Repeat two more times with a milky green jasper bead, then make a dangle with a dark green jasper bead and then another dangle with a beige jasper bead. You should have five jasper dangles.
Slide a Dakota Stones blood quartz 6mm faceted round bead onto a head pin, followed by a Vintaj Natural Brass 7mm filigree bead cap. Make a wrapped loop at the top of the beads. Repeat two times for three blood quartz dangles.
Attach a 6mm jump ring to the bottom center of your middle filigree. Attach a milky green jasper dangle to this jump ring using a Vintaj Natural Brass 5mm rib cable 18 gauge open jump ring. Attach the beige jasper dangle and a blood quartz dangle to this 5mm jump ring using another 5mm jump ring.
