Metal artist: Pam Brown

Pam on Pinterest


It's funny...Pam calls herself a "dabbler", but I think when you see the pieces she makes that you might choose to disagree!  Pam contacted me recently for some help with a tutorial I wrote on adding ammonia and salt patina and heat patina to copper.  Just look at how amazing her beads turned out!  I asked Pam to share some more about her metal work, and here's what she had to say:  


I started dabbling in jewelry about 3 yrs. ago. I've always been fascinated with it, and love the art of it. I started out probably like most, stringing beads and purchasing a lot of beads but not really knowing what to do with them other than string. I didn't have a lot of extra money to take classes so I started watching YouTube tutorials and researching websites like Pinterest, and reading other jewelers blogs. I absorbed like a sponge and self taught myself. I dabble in a lot of different mediums.

These days I'm into copper, metal etch and torching I love the color you can achieve with a little heat ! I really like the copper tube beads I learned from your site Beading Arts. I'm having fun putting the beads together with other components that I made.   I'd like to think of myself as an artist, but I don't think I'm quite there yet. But I will say I'm a Dabbler and love to learn new techniques.
