Shimmer Sheetz Jewelry

Last Wednesday I posted my work desk for the WOYWW weekly post. You seen a fairly neat area but with a few packages of jewelry findings.  Yesterday I played a bit with some Sheetz and this is my start....

The top pieces I swiped with Black StazOn ink then wiped it off.  I don't know if I like that set or not.  The bottom pieces I swiped with Saddle Brown StazOn ink, let it set a few seconds, then wiped.  Much better results.

Here's the finished pieces with the brown ink.  I used all copper findings and added a crystal in each piece.

I like this! The brown ink gave a rather uneven color but I like it!

The earrings really came out different.  I did manage to add a bit more brown to the earring on the right but not as much as the left one.  The crystals were adhered with the I*Rock tool.  The chain on the pendant is 22" and I may try to sell this.  And suggestions for the price??  And any suggestions on the top pieces in the first picture?  The black was just TOO much black.  Maybe I'll sand them....
