Custom Jewelry Options
Other than the obvious color difference between copper and silver, there is another thing to consider, and that is whether you want it to be antiqued. Basically it means that the metal is tarnished and then all the high points in the design are cleaned up. This results in a darker coloring in the recessed areas of the metal. These darker areas make it much easier to see the details in a piece of jewelry. It also gives it an antique or vintage look.
If a wire has a patina then there is thin layer of Renaissance wax applied to it after the patina. This is a top quality micro-crystalline wax that protects the metal and the patina.
If the wire does not have a patina then it comes with its own protective anti-tarnish layer.
In most cases, the bead options are limited primarily by the size or shape of bead used in the design.
Many of these beads have quite a bit of natural variation from bead to bead. If you prefer a bead with a certain characteristic (lighter, darker, etc) then I will do my best to find what you want within your chosen bead type. All you have to do is mention your preferences in the box marked Special Instructions in your cart. Please keep in mind that color may not display correctly on all screens.
If your interested in a particular bead -that you don't see here- let me know and I will see if I can get it. This may result in a longer wait time and/or an additional fee
Since all the jewelry on this website is handmade by me, It also means that you can easily get custom pieces made to suit you. For example if you see something offered in copper but want it in silver instead - just ask. Send me an email from the contact page or hit the enquiry button on the product page. Let me know just what you want changed and I will let you know if there would be a price difference, or anything else regarding the change.
