Guess this is the natural progression in my wire jewelry journey - oxidizing my pieces. I have been thinking about it for a while. Actually since I purchased my first sterling silver wire few months back.
When I reached home yesterday evening, I headed straight to the kitchen, took out an airtight container and start boiling an egg. So, here are some pictorials to show the whole process of oxidizing my wire wrap sterling silver sparkly ring...hmm, almost whole process except for the polishing part.
Result after 15 minutes, golden brown.
As the color is not dark enough, egg was reheated in the microwave and placed back into the container. Left it for another 15 minutes.
Now, I wonder how do I polish this ring? Someone suggested polishing cloth and another steel wool. The problem is, I don't have both...and not sure where to find them......duh!
Any suggestion where I can find these two items or you have other suggestions on what can be used (household items?) to polish it.
All suggestions are welcome.....Thanks in advance :)
