It's fun to mix metal finishes within jewelry designs. By mixing copper, brass, silver, and gold in her charm bracelets, Cynthia and Cheri created fun color palettes full of shine. There are unlimited options when it comes to the combinations you can create. See more ideas for mixing metals in your jewelry designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
