    I would use with cream/ off white, magenta, lime green and different shades of purple. Pearls, crystals and glass beads.

  • Jennifer Young

    I love Autumn colors! I think the deep reds, oranges, olive greens, and purples would all look amazing with the Vintaj line.

  • Tammy

    I love a bright blue with the gunmetal items, but with the copper Vintaj I love the rusty reds that fall brings, but add the patina and man you c,an used a whole new pallet of colors opens for use.

  • Lisa Clark

    I love blues and greens (the influence of copper with patina, I guess!). I recently treated myself to the BigKick machine and add texture to the Vintaj blanks before using the patina kit.

  • Jennifer

    I would so love to win these! I’ve never made anything with Vintaj Brass! I’ve never even patinaed (if that’s a word) before, so this would be a new experience. I’ve been looking to learn this for a while, but have no idea where to start. Oh yeah, your question, I would probably go with different shades of blue, but I would really like to try to patina before decided so I can see what happens.

  • Rita Smith

    I would use pastel pinks, roses, and violet colors…pulling out the “vintage rose” feel to make a Victorian-inspired retro piece or pull dusty roses and browns into it to finally finish my Steampunk-inspired piece I’ve been working on. Have been playing with alcohol inks to create a blend of these colors…

  • Kristi Glaze

    Oh my gosh I love these! I would use deep, rich fall colors with pearls and velvet ribbon! Love!

  • Any color would be great!! I have just started working with these and they are a lot of fun! :-)

  • Carol Wilson

    This looks like fun

  • Rhonda

    I would like to use orange, red and brown for an Autumn look to go with those beautiful burnished shades.

  • Jes

    Pinks and pale greens (like the color or tarnished copper)

  • Janet Timme

    Copper and turquoise, or maybe garnet and jasper beads for fall.

  • Deb

    I would use blues and purples or maybe greens and purples…I’m not sure!!!

  • shantelle

    Ive always wanted to try this and would love to win ..
    I would use all natural colors for these i dig the vintage look and goes well with my chainmaille pieces…

  • I would use them with black and deep red…

  • Juli Pedersen

    I love the greens, oranges and purples together! Makes me feel like I’m walking around on a cool autumn morning enjoying the fabulous display of colors put on by the trees and shrubs!

  • susan atkinson

    I love turquoise shades with brass or copper. And Vintaj is the best!!

  • Rebecca Gurule

    These beads are beautiful with any color however I think they would look great with Mother of Pearl, Crystal especially Teal Blue, Purple, Hot Pink and Mint green. Pearls and Rose Quarts and the best color would be Opalite which will make them look fabulous :)

  • I would use greens and orange for fall.

  • I’m currently finding my inspiration with Autumn colors and I would love to try colors in deep reds, oranges, greens, and purples with the Vintaj line.

  • Shia

    I would use the weathered copper and antique window kits. It would add beautiful color during the winter and still be gorgeous year round.

  • Susan Farbstein

    There are two colors that I am passionate about that would look spectacular: amazonite green and Swarovski crystal color light grey opal.

  • Brinna

    Love this with either bright blue or as I look out the window Fall colors would be my inspiration right now! These are very stylish and would look lovely with autumn colored pearls!

  • Debra Parks

    I love deep blues, greens, and golds found on peacocks. Honestly though, inspiration always comes from the piece. I’ll think I’m going to use one color, when another comes along and quietly demands to be expressed. These pieces will look beautiful with soft, subtle colors of the morning, bright vivid from the afternoon, and Gothic dark from the shadows of the night.

  • Becky Griffith

    Since the vintaj items remind me of fall/winter,I would use almost a steel blue/gray…a coppery brown, and burgundy,yellow ocre, and a darker blue as accents~ I love to use colors that are a little off the beaten path,and think these would really showcase the lovely vintaj products!

  • Marsha Gulick

    I love the “Rusted Hardware” collection. Three different shades of red, orange and brown. Thank you for a chance at a giveaway!

  • I would use blue with the apricot orange, it looks amazing

  • Shaiha

    I am just now developing an interest in patina so I would love to win this great prize! I would probably go with a great perhaps mixed with blue to get a teal color.

  • I am really in love with copper and jewel tones (like teal and peacock blue and rich purple).

  • echo schertz

    I can’t stop using the aqua and turquoise shades with the autumn oranges.

  • I have been using a lot of Vintaj components and findings with aqua crytals for a while now. Now I am very excited to try your patinas.I’ll be trying the patinas in deep purples with limey olive greens. Can’t wait.

  • I would probably use red or teal, I think that would look good with the metals.

  • Erin Schlomann

    I would love to keep the earthy color scheme and use some greens and blues! That would make some amazing pieces!~

  • Courtney H

    I would get a head start to Christmas jewelry by incorporating golds, reds, and greens! :)

  • Kelli Drum

    I would use pink and green.

  • Stacy in KS

    I would use blues and greens!

  • Debi

    I am thinking Christmas gifts for my nieces. They all love jewelry and I could make customized pieces for each one of them!

  • Sarah DeHaan

    I would use fall colors with all those copper pieces! Pearls would work nicely with the Vintag line, in rusts, browns and creams, with splashes of reds and yellows interspersed. I’d probably find a way to make some with teals, as I’m loving all the teal beads you can find right now. Very pretty!

  • Joan Hill

    I have to pick one color combination?!?!?!? I want to try them ALL!!!! OK..if I have to chose. I think I really would like to work on copper with reds and olive greens. I would try to get a vintage wine look and feel to the pieces. mixed in with some nice pearls and a little glitz with swarovski bicones. Okay, I so want to win!
