One technique for mixing metals in your jewelry designs is layering embellishments together with the help of epoxy adhesive. The layers add dimension to your projects and the different metal colors allow you to bring in even more metals in the rest of your design. This necklace combines brass, patina, and copper colors in a magical owl style. You can see more ideas for mixing metals in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
