Finally Oxidized

What do you think? Is it better to oxidized or non-oxidized? Check un-oxidized pix here.
As mentioned in my previous post, I finally got these two sparkly rings oxidized last night and polished with steel wool size 000.
Yeah! Did I mention that I found the steel wool? With steel wool, I don't need to use strength to polish them as compared to the green pads (for scouring dishes) that I used previously, before I found the steel wool :).
The funny thing is when you are not looking for it, they are all over the place :)

It will be weekend tomorrow, so I wish you all a happy weekend and happy wrapping.

You know Mei I think oxidizing is a personal thing...I like it but I've found that most of my customers don't seem to be drawn to anything that is oxidized...one benefit is you don't have to worry about the piece tarnishing! :0)

Cheers

Agree with you Heather! My body oxidizes silver naturally :) So if i am to put on a piece, I'd go for oxidized. It looks better than naturally oxidized piece ;p.
