Oxidized Bronze

Post by hayseed on Thu Oct 10, 2013 7:08 pm

TB mentioned that bronze did not oxidize enough to make the X links look as nice a silver if they did them in bronze. But here are some bronze beads by a Finnish maker, some shiny and some oxidized. I hope TB will reconsider, as I really love bronze since gold is too expensive! cheers

Thanks for sharing this. I really like the bronze bracelet and some of the charms.

My X bronze links, have a dull oxidised look to them already bounce  I would like to see some more decorative charms in bronze

Found these on another site for a bit less (minus VAT) but shipping to the US is very expensive. There is a silver pyramids too. This bit is interesting about the company "a company of 4000 Finnish women".

That site also lists retailers by country.  So it might be worth a phone call or email to a shop in your own country to see if they have or can get the beads you want.

For the US, it lists an agent in Minnesota.
