Faux Patina Beads {Turquoise}

A couple weeks ago I decided to try to create my own {faux} patina beads. I had some rose silvertone metal beads that had been left out and already started to oxidize. I gathered them up and started on my faux patina project! In the end, I wanted them to have a lot of turquoise left on them and only lightly sanded off to see the rose part of the bead. They had a sealer applied twice and I let them dry.

This was a quick weekend project. I have other colors to try next. But now, I can't wait to create some fun summer earrings using these beads!
