…a desire or longing, a wish. This is the name I’ve chosen for my newest earrings listed on Etsy. I am really pleased with how they’ve turned out.
Raw brass ear wires, made by moi, with Czech glass beads in a lovely light sapphire blue. The beads have a picasso finish top and bottom.
Raw brass developes a patina over time, as does copper. Some people (I’m one of them) love the look of these metals as they age and become darker. For those that don’t, and are concerned with buying brass/copper products because of this, the patina can be easily removed with either lemon juice or vinegar. Simply put the juice/vinegar in a shallow bowl, add brass/copper (the glass beads will be fine to go in too), and swirl it around for a bit. Rinse under cold running water, and hang jewellery to dry thoroughly! Simple >^..^<
