Vintaj Arte Metal Jewelry Designs

Vintaj Arte Metal is a ferrite-based alloy.  It is 100% nickel and lead free compliant just like the Vintaj Natural Brass line.  Eco-friendly, “green” processes are used to age both metals which include rubbing with natural oils to achieve their unique color and luster.  No environmentally harmful chemicals are used in our process.   These are not plated in any way, but left in their natural state.

New Ornate Flat Tags from Nunn Design

I love the new ornate flat tags from Nunn Designs! Here are some ideas of what to do with them.

In the samples below made by Nunn Design, the top cuff uses Nunn Design Flat Tag Ornate Ensign Pendant, which has been modified.  Use the metal hole punch plier or two hole metal punch to make the extra holes:

We had a little fun in our shop stamping and creating.  I (Vicki) made a pendant to represent my desire to feel queenly. In the sample below, I used the crown design stamp, an old stamping set that I got at an estate sale with extra large letters, and used Ranger Alcohol Ink copper mixative with the Nunn Design Ornate Regiment Flat Tag Pendant:

his sample uses Aras upper case & Aras lower case and Dove design stamp, with black sharpie Vintaj Patina Verdigris on the Nunn Design Ornate Flat Tag Tablet Pendant.

The sample below is a tag for Sara’s cat Conway.  It uses the Nunn Design Ornate Flat Tag Oval, with a 1/8″ Letter Punch set and Full Heart design stamp. It is colored with Vintaj Weathered Copper Patinas, Ranger Alcohol Ink Red Pepper (part of Tuscan Garden).
