    Can't disagree that there's lots listed, just that most of them of the correct colour are in the US and will incur postage charges that whack the price up. But as I recall I think the ones I bought...

    Very nice, when I used to make copper earrings I used to use niobium ear wires (pre-made) in a coppery shade - less jarring than silver to the eye and without the need to additional patina that would...

    Thanks Dennis, yes I'd normally use a paintbrush to add the LoS so as not to get the patina behind it but didn't today. No matter, it's a tiny little thing and I'll wear it myself.

    This thread is nine years old, you might be better off starting a new topic with your question. I play with metal clay a bit but don't do fingerprints so can't answer your question.
