patinas for beads

updated thu 31 oct 96 on wed 2 oct 96

Hi Folks,
My friend Jamie is a talented beadmaker and has become interested in other
clay treatments than what she has been using. She does different shapes,
including faces molded from old jewelry. She glazes beads and mixes oxides
with the clay for color as well. She'd like to know if anyone on Clayart
knows of patinas or other finishes that would work for jewelry. Jamie learned
beading from a well known beadmaker from NH named Jane Smith. NH folks might
remember her. She's not making beads any more. TIA
