I just returned from a two week vacation, so honestly there is not much going on in the Humblebeads studio this week. I did manage to sneak in some new owl beads this morning and play around with a few different finishes. We have Sea Salt with the white and teal combo, Patina in the teal and bronze and Antiquity with a simple brown umber glaze. The owl is from an Athenian coin dated from around 200 B.C., if I remember correctly. (I might have that wrong, since my brain has yet to return from vacation!) Coins that were stamped with Athena on one side and her owl on the other were some of the first used as currency.
Okay, so this week's question is as short and simple as this post. Which finish do you like best for the owl coins, Sea Salt, Patina or Antiquity? (Left to right in the photo) Leave a comment and next week one lucky winner will receive the owl in the finish that they choose.
