J's work is included in this beautiful hardback book—PATINA: 300+ Coloration Effects for Jewelers & Metalsmiths by Matthew Runfola—conceived, designed, and produced by Quarto Publishing in London and published in North America by Interweave Press. This photo rich book is a terrific resource for patination and coloration techniques.

    “Blackened steel, natural brass, and copper are used for the design elements composing this ring. Using color to differentiate components within an object is a wonderful way to have the viewer focus on parts as well as the whole.”
