Earrings and Patina jewelry findings

These are acrylic beads I found at Big Lots a couple of years ago.  I added the bead cap and a silver triangle at the bottom.  I think they are a pretty fun look for spring or summer.

A view from the top of the bead cap.

These beads are a beautiful blue.  I wish I had saved the tag so I knew what type of stone they are.

These diamond shapes are the same material as the previous blue stone (I cut off the pic. at the bottom, ooppsss)
These dangles are for me.  I have a lot of red that I wear.  The beads are acrylic with a crystal between.
OK....I know I said the previous group of earrings was my last...however....I guess when the muse strikes you go with it!  I couldn't sleep a couple of nights ago so my brain was wandering and thinking of all these ideas (none of which I wrote down BTW), so last night I was geared up to try a few more earrings.  I also saw an idea to patina jewelry findings so I remembered the patina I purchased several decades ago.  Lo and behold it was still good.  I think these have a very vintage feel.

I thought I might add a bit of bling to this with some small crystals.

I used less patina on these.  Every item turns out very unique.

These are copper.  I bought a great assortment of stuff on ebay and these were in there.  Only problem is they both face the same way, not good for earrings.  I am going to add them to a pendant or something.
