Marina called me up one morning all excited because her friend Lynda's birthday was coming up and she wanted to treat her to a class. We planned out the day and time and knew we were going to give her a fun birthday present. The day came and after giving them all their options we decided to do something more funky and fun! Marina picked a square piece of brass that I done a salt, vinegar and ammonia patina on to set in silver with a copper ball accent to make a ring. Lynda picked a long slab of quartz to set in silver and a faceted rutilated quartz bead to make a pendant. We had a great time and they left with some beautiful unique pieces, Happy Birthday Lynda!
