    Seen above, the contents of a spring parcel from the UK. 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.
