Fresh Out of the Kiln

Here are some brand new silver pieces I just took out of the kiln.  A playful heart, a starfish, and a couple of fine silver beads.  They still have a way to go before I use them.  They've been steel brushed.  Next, they will need to be finished a little more and tumbled to strengthen and shine. 

I haven't decided whether to apply a patina or not.  What do you think?  Usually when I add a patina, it is to bring out finer details.  I think I will give the starfish one for sure.  It has some nice texture that you can't really see without a patina.  The beads are an experiment. 

Have a great day!
