Back in December I stopped by one of my new favorite places to acquire goodies for repurposing, The Nesting Cottage in Camden, NC. I posted the picture on the right to share my finds from that day.
Recently I was perusing these pieces and I couldn't stop thinking about this link style necklace you see below.
It was dirty, dingy and tarnished, but had a lovely, flexible feel and a nice solid weight. After washing with mild soap and drying I began to experiment with various colors of Ranger patina. I tried an antique bronze and also copper, but they weren't giving me the look I hoped for.
Ultimately, I ended up with two of my favorites, Moss green and the turquoise-y Patina.

I love the fresh spring like combination of colors here, just what you need in a record breaking cold January to get you out of the doldrums and thinking about warmer months ahead. I really like giving new life to something that was in a junk bin a month ago. :-D
Thanks for reading today. Have a great rest of the week~
