Bio

I spend a lot of time outdoors, getting inspiration for my designs and enjoying the world around me. Since I design all of my own pieces, my items are unique and often one of a kind. Working with stained glass has become my passion. I often spend an entire day designing and crafting a piece. Recently my focus has been on stained glass jewelry, though I also love to create sun catchers, panels and garden art. I've always loved to create with my hands. I began sewing and jewelry making at a very early age. By the time I was in middle school I was making my own clothes, working with polymer clay and taking pottery and wood working classes. In high school I worked in a bead shop making and selling jewelry. I also took classes in art metal, pottery, screen printing, enameling, and countless other things. Since then I've learned about, designed and made everything from fashion accessories to temporary dwellings.

Excellent!, May 6, 2009 5 stars
Pros
Simichrome Polish delivers the most brilliant and long lasting shine with a minimal amount of elbow grease. It's incredibly potent and easy to use. Just a pea sized amount on a rag can easily polish a small to mid-sized panel. Works great to shine copper patina and in my experience can create a beautiful aged bronze effect when used on black patina.
Cons
I have seen simichrome polish take copper patina off especially in raised or over polished spots. For that reason I use this polish a bit more gently on copper patina. Not to worry - if you do accidentally polish a bit too much you can easily re-apply patina.
Other Thoughts
Use sparingly! A little really does go a long way.
