SupplyYourSoul's Shop Announcement

Handcrafted components, hand applied patina finishes, natural stone cabochons, beads & quality commercial chain and findings in copper, sterling silver and aluminum. Ready made items usually ship same or next day. Handmade or hand altered items currently have a 2 WEEK PRODUCTION TIME. If you order multiple items they will ship together and be determined by the item that takes the longest to complete.

I have searched many sources to find natural stones that have a quality cut, polish and color. There are many cheaper stones out there - but the quality can be really poor. I am proud to sell the stones I use in my own designs. I try my best to photograph them accurately, and I stand behind everything I sell - if they don't meet your expectations, you can return them for a full refund (minus shipping) or an exchange of equal value.

My newest patinas, developed to be a little more durable and less likely to flake or chip:

ANCIENT RELIC - designed to blend with my Melted Silver components, this patina has a deep oxidized based with a glaze or wash of silverleaf.
WABI-SABI - a Japanese phrase that roughly translates as "imperfect beauty". This patina starts with deeply oxidized copper, onto which layers of colors that range from yellow/green to rust to near white, with a whitewash effect. The overall look is of neutral tones, and this patina blends well with many of the colors found in nature and with most metals.
RIVER RUN - greens and blues blended on oxidized copper, then polished to highlight some of the copper, it brings to mind floating downstream with the sun glinting through leaves and blue sky onto moss covered rocks and crystal clear spring water.
COOKIES N CREAM - a deep oxidized brown base, with creamy white splashed about, polished to highlight some of the bright copper - this one is yummy!

TRADITIONAL PATINAS ARE A VARIABLE SURFACE TREATMENT - they are somewhat delicate and not meant for everyday wear. Although I seal them to protect, they should not be exposed to water or jewelry cleaning solutions or rough treatment. Patinas are basically like rust - they are created on the surface of metal by chemical treatments - and they can chip or flake off even though they are sealed. If you must clean them, wipe carefully with a damp cloth. You can also periodically re-apply a semi-gloss spray lacquer and/or microcrystalline wax to your pieces to continue to protect the finishes.
My hand applied Traditional Patinas:
ANTIQUE OXIDIZED - warm to deep brown tones.
FLAME - warm copper that sometimes has hints of red, orange, blue or silver - each piece is unique. Created by applying torch to metal, and quite variable - I cannot produce certain colors - the end result isn't apparent until the copper is sealed with lacquer. This is a heat patina rather than a chemical patina.
VERDIGRIS - the traditional copper patina, variable shades of green -sometimes light, sometimes darker, sometimes with a bit of blue.
TIDELINE - oxidized deep brown base, frosted with tones that vary from blue ocean to teal
DEEP FOREST - oxidized deep brown base with verdigris (green) overtones
STORM - variable tones, kinda like the weather. A deep steely blue sometimes with green-blue tones.
