These hammered brass rings / earrings are painted with layers of colorful patinas. You will notice that the finished patina does not result in a solid bright color, but rather a soft watercolor-like finish. As the patina reacts with the metal, the concentration and saturation of color varies along the surface, reminding one of a watercolor painting. This adds quite a unique, weathered and earthy character.
