Hello and welcome to Patina Queen. As you can see, I LOVE patinas! I've spent over a decade now, gently manipulating raw copper, brass and silver in an attempt to re-create some of Mother Nature's handiwork I'm so inspired by. Like all artists, my work is constantly evolving. I'm currently smitten with molten silver, mixed metals and crocheting. An unexpected surprise has been the overwhelmingly positive response from my newest jewelry collection. I'm truly touched! Below is a thank you note a customer shared with me recently. She had purchased a necklace for her childhood best friend. Her friend wrote...
"I have gotten so many compliments on my beautiful necklace and it always gives me the opportunity for me to tell the story of our friendship. What a blessing!"
My jewelry designs and supply line have been featured in numerous books and magazine publications such as Creative Jewelry, Stringing, BeadStyle and 101 Bracelets, Necklaces, and Earrings. I've also been fortunate enough to have sold my jewelry to costume designers and seen it worn by celebrities on tv and film.
There is always a lot going on here at PQ. My shop offers customers the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind finished pieces or hand finished supplies if you are a jewelry designer. I also accommodate wholesale orders on jewelry and select supplies. Contact me directly through the site for further details.
As a business owner and artist I'm constantly learning and setting new goals for myself. I've really only scratched the surface as to where this journey will lead. I love learning new things and get equally excited when I can share my experiences with others. Maybe author will be the next step on this great patina adventure... ;) Thank you for visiting and much love to all! xo, Heather
