<3 The metal is PINK!! :D! 646 RE-PINS !! This pink-colored metal rocks, rocks, ROCKS! I wonder how it's done ( metallurgy-wise, photoShop?;) ). If any of you know, please comment. My lapidary instructor said she had a machine that colorizes metal, but I thought it caused a rainbow affect, while this is lovely single color. Could be rhodium coated. I wonder if argentium colorizes? If someone did this with photoshop, it definitely gets the inventor-head going!
