Sue loved the look of burnished copper so she chose to make earrings using that metal. She enhanced the coppery look with a brownish grey faceted crystal bead with smaller glass bead accents in copper or gold colours. The result is a pair of earrings with old-fashioned charm.

The metal of real vintage or estate jewelry develops a patina over time from exposure to oxygen in the air. Many people like that aged look so modern metal can be treated like the earring findings here to simulate old jewelry.
