    Nice! Did you use Gilder’s Paste on the caps?

    We did use a little Gilders Paste on the capsules, Tracy! We used the color Patina.

    This is a wonderful design. It is also a good idea piece. One to make your own. I already have ideas I want to try. And thanks for all the wonderful ideas you have given me in the past.

    I love this design, those little spiders are brilliant. The cascading chains and charms are lovely and give you plenty to admire everytime you look at it.
