|Vintaj Natural Brass Compass Compass Sent|
Welcome to the Patina Blog Hop! It's history began in December 2013 when I offered to give away nine 26mm (.6mm thick), Arte Metal, Compass Decorivet with two posterior prongs. It can be used to decorate any material by simply pushing the rivet ends into your material and folding over. Also, you can use needle nose pliers to turn the rivet points into loops for use in jewelry designs. Vintaj Arte Metal is a ferrite (iron) based metal. It is not antique plated and is nickel and lead-free. My hope was that everyone who joined this challenge would also be a member of Artisan Whimsy and have an active blog. I got nine folks up to the challenge and I am excited to see what they did with the compass that they were sent. But first, let me show you what I did to my compass.
