Sun Ray Drops

I just recently began etching metal and I've really enjoyed it, and, except for the ferric chloride stain on my kitchen island, it's been a lot of fun. After etching these teardrops, I knew I wanted to use some Bubby & McGurk lampwork headpins that I have been hoarding.

                                                                                  Sun Ray Drops are on my website.

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!

  1. I love these!!! The color on your copper is gorgeous--toasty warm! And I adore the etching on them, love the freeform sun drawing!

  2. These are beautiful. Great combination of bead and metal!

  3. Perfect pairing of lampwork and copper. Well done!

  4. Kristy these came out awesome - you are doing such a fabulous job with the etching! Love the off-set Sun Rays on these gorgeous teardrop shapes - and of course Dean's beads are always an eye catcher - so win-win! You two make a fabulous pairing in more ways than one <3

  5. Beautiful! I have never really gotten the hang of etching. I don't like the chemicals and I am totally impatient! I love the look and wish I could do it. Great paired with the little drops of glass that look like they are melting in the sun's rays! Enjoy the day. Erin

  6. Kristi, I was a chemistry major many decades ago (5 decades ago….) I am pretty sure that you can convert ferric chloride to the colorless ferrous chloride by puddling Windex or any ammonia based cleaner over your stain. If your counter can take Windex, it is worth a try. Susan Delphine Delaney
