new techniques

 I've started oxidizing and polishing some of my jewels and it is truly  a great technique: it enhances the details and gives an antique and mysterious feel to jewellery . I have been using liver of sulphur ,the liquid form, which I ordered online at www.silverclay.co.uk . The smell is not very pleasant- similar to rotten eggs, but the result is worth it.

  1. This necklace is simply gorgeous! I prefer oxidized silver, gives the jewelry that vintage look, don't like it too shiny... And your wire wrapping skills are stunning!
