Took it out, rinsed and dried.
And the results are in.
It looks great.
Need to make some more pieces like this.
See the dyed results to the right.
Which do you prefer, plain or colored? (be honest)
Still haven't had a chance to try the dye mix with polymer clay.
Definitely like this chain though, the effects are subtle between the small, medium and oblong pearls and the bicone beads, but the colors harmonize with each other. Every pearl and bicone are a lightly different color, just the way vintage would be, with the wear and aging.
The wirework process to make the links of this style of chain are very, very slow but the results are dramatic and possibly worth it.
Had some 8mm dyed pearls, the cocoa chanel (did anyone catch the joke - cocoa color, get it?) pearls pictured in an earlier post, wired rosary wrapped with red-tone metal, combined those with the brass sparrow in flight and added this small bit of chain horizontally between the links. This one is definitely going somewhere with me today.
