New bracelet and some resin work in progress

Just finished a bracelet. Focal is patinated etched copper, with a soldered bezel - filled with resin - and a vintage red brass flower component soldered on.




I have a couple of resin pieces in the works. This is an etched copper focal with soldered bezel, filled with lichen and resin and treated with patina.



An object I found at  the flea market a couple of weeks ago - a little tin praliné form; inside inked paper, a real leaf and text, filled with resin.

I love them all! The focal on the bracelet is great! And I love the pendant with the lichen and the patina. Will the lichen stay the lovely green color? Can't wait to see what you do with the two pendants.
