Patina is a thin layer that variously forms on the surface of stone, copper, bronze and similar metals (tarnish produced by oxidation or other chemical processes), wooden furniture (sheen produced by age, wear, and polishing), or any such acquired change of a surface through age and exposure.
The coloration of patina very much depends on season- humidity, sunlight, temperature etc. From experience, she sees a brighter blue in the summer and darker blue in the winter.
It is important that you know before purchasing a patina piece that even though this patina has be fixed on the metal (3 times), the nature of patina is to change over time depending on how the piece is cared for and how often it is worn.
-It is recommended to not submerge your patina’d pieces in water.
-Some areas may lose the blue patina over time where the piece rubs against another surface.
This is what makes these pieces more unique, as the patina becomes more beautiful as the jewelry ages.
