I like these propeller pieces because they go great with all the steampunk stuff I do - from jewelry to art objects. They add a unique touch and people wonder where you got it.

Thanks Kirin! Hopefully people will repost as asked, and please choose something I haven't, already. I'm hoping to see tweets and reposts to Facebook **with links***....XOXO

Okay I know I always pick hearts but they truly are my favorite amazing charms from B'sue. About a year before the Rusty patina finish came out I asked B'sue if she would be getting in something similar to that dark finish. So when she got these in they were exactly what I was looking for. The finish is just so lovely, like chocolate. I love the way they go with the antique keys I have been using in my designs. So all of the Rusty Patina items are really my favorites but of course I love this heart lock. "He who holds the key can unlock my heart".


I'm loving the chocolate ox finish. I am just starting to use filigree and be brave enough to layer lots of it like in the necklace. Here's one piece I'm eyeing:

I really would like to try this one. I think it would be great used in necklaces or even done up as a tie clasp.


Tamara Jones (Irrysistable Jewels)

I am for sure doing this. I just love the Green Patina over brass OX filigree heart. I know I'm going to use it in something wonderful when it gets here and am wishing I had bought more.



I don't really have a favorite finding at B'Sue Boutiques as I love them all! I have really been wanting to try Ooky the Octupus in the rusty black finish. http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/Ooky-The-Ugly-Octopus-8327

I opted to do the blog post,which I have since posted to my Facebook page. I did a private event last night, and jewelry made with your findings were the stars of the show. Blogging about it was the easiest thing in the world. :-)

An excerpt: "At the moment I am in love with her wonderful floral components, like this one in Old Rose Ox, http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/Single-Layer-Flower-with-Rivet-Hole-6333, and this one, in Chocolate Ox, http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/39mm-Six-Petal-Pierced-Drilled-With-Top-Hole-Rusty-Black-Flower-8527.

Why? Because with those pieces (and a few other bits, of course) I made this set, which found a new home last night.

I'm an absolute flower fan, anytime, any wear....lol, gorgeous creation! Thanks for this too.

I think the necklace is sweet and I love the patinas and the SIZE! I bought some oversize beetles from B'Sue and I bought some patina and now I plan to patina the beetles and use them in as oversized earrings. I think working outside the box on my jewelry makes me think outside the box and keeps my work at a more interesting level artistically (is that a word?) Anyway, so I love looking at B'Sues "finds" as they always give me new Over the Top ideas...

Ruth Crawford

This is my favorite now, I have a great necklace idea in mind, and I love the new rusty black ox. I have no idea how to paste this on my FB page. Brenda you are the greatest and you give all friends and customers the best you have to give. I have learned so much from you. Thank you


This is so easy for me... seeing as I have had my eye on B'Sue's Chocolate Patina'd pieces for awhile now, I just love the rich, deep differnt finish and i am all about differnt... I especially love these dainty little florets: http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/Chocolate-Ox-Patina-15mm-Floret-7953



This is my absolute favorite! It is so Victorian looking and forms into the greatest cuff bracelet! It makes your design look like it is enriched with detail! I wouldn't be without one!

Julia Kakoulidou


Really love this beautiful lady! She is so delicate! I like using her as a cameo brooch with my (also)favorite teapot as her crown!!!

Janine Fowler


I love this princess carriage. I got the one in Brass Ox and it's my absolute favourite. I have had so many compliments on the necklace I made using this as the focal. I think I might try this Silver plate one too, it looks really pretty!


These are my newest favorite - I just ordered a bunch more!


Karyn B

I love this Floral Cluster Pendant in the rusty black patina finish. I'd love to remove the patina on the high points and turn it into an earthy necklace with lots of dark wood beads and pops of bright color.


And I'd probably need to get some corrugated and raindrop bead caps to go with it. :D

I love these http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/Single-Layer-Flower-with-Rivet-Hole-6333, I don't know how to rivet yet but when I do I need tons of these!


this is my favorite thing
I used it today on a necklace center piece that I featured with your link on my blog
and posted your link withthis item and my blog feature useing it on facebook
for tiffany long

Keep em coming....I'm extending deadline til TOMORROW, MONDAY, November 14 at 3pm EST (Ohio, USA time) so my newsletter readers have enough time for this too....but a winner will be announced right after that!


I have so many things I like on the website, I find it hard to pick a favorite. But for some reason, this piece always calls out to me: http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/35x35mm-Bracelet-Plaques-332
The first time I got one as a gifty with one of my orders. The one I got is in a coppery finish, but I know it comes in several finishes, which is one of the reasons I like it so much. Not only is there versatility in the color, but this piece can be used so many ways....as a necklace focal, or as a brooch, or as a bracelet link, or even mounted on a cuff. It can be enhanced with color, or a cabochon, or with resin.


Wow,very pretty! My favorite product are your bezel charms. I love cutting out words and little pictures from my magazines before i recycle them and the Bezel charms are perfect for creating mini collages to wear! I also ordered the little secret window charms(i can't find them now,so i'm not sure what they are called) I love my little window charm and have been saving it for the perfect creation but i am going to check out your blog for some new ideas to use with it..thanks!!


I found them..they are called Love Letter Charms..

I've been looking forever for acorn bead caps! Can't wait to break out the torch and make the amber glass beads that will look so great with these!

pat Rini

I love any filigree that can be manipulated and used as a bezel !!! but don't know how to find the links for them--LOL --but the one item i use the most at this learning time is....http://www.bsueboutiques.com/item/German-Silver-Gilders-Paste-6408----this Paste is amazing-- and with all BSues' Videos on You Tube andyone can learn to incorporate it in their works--

I have SO many favorite pieces from www.bsueboutiques.com ! ALL of my jewelry is made using her designer finish findings! My customers especially like the silverware silverplate finish! I personally love the Old Rose Ox and the Russian Goldplate! I can't get enough of the ring shanks!
They are so beautiful, durable and easy to create with. The finishes are the BEST available anywhere!! Many times I have worn one and my farmers market customers have purchased the ring right off my finger! We always keep at least 24 designed rings at our booth.

Brenda Sue Lansdowne

Thanks to all who were a part of this little contest/experiment! And I'm happy to say that Tamara Jones won the necklace!

I envy your talents. You are so good at what you do!! How long does this typically take you to make? How did you get into this?
