Who doesn’t have endless metal findings in their craft drawer?
I have so many!
I love to buy findings.
Many of my metal findings were purchased in fancy, expensive findings stores but some were purchased in low-cost fashion shops, taken apart from ready-made commercial jewellery to be re-designed into another jewel.
Yes, I know they are not 24K gold quality but sometimes you don’t want to invest a fortune to create a jewel.
The findings are usually found in silver, gold & copper colours but what if you want them Turquoise? Orange? Red?
This is where Gilders Paste comes to our aid.
When I saw my old findings I knew I couldn’t use them as they are. Some of them were even starting to tarnish so the paste gave them new life, colour and even protection!
You can see two samples combining these findings in my Macrame earrings: Patina colour (turquoise) and Orange.
Now go check your old and boring metal findings and give them an upgrade using the many gilder paste colours!
Have fun! :)
