Happy Go Lucky

This is a new line I have developed for Spring called Happy Go Lucky or Footloose and Fancy Free. Never can decide on the perfect title so I may use both.

My designs are cut out of raw brass. The metal is then sanded and polished and ready to paint. After the paint is dry I then etch. This process removes the paint and allows the metal to show thru. Metal is then lacquered. Finally the metal is assembled into this necklace with split rings and beads. The resulting process that I made up is called Gypsy Graffiti....Because the painting and etching is like my Graffiti and the finished product once beaded to death is the Gypsy part.
