  1. oxidize your silver jewelry with an egg: Chop up a boiled egg and place in ziplock bag with silver jewelry. Wait a while (few hours+) until the piece has the patina you desire.

  2. If you are new to wire working use inexpensive craft wire or copper for practice. Save your $ until you have a good feel of the skills needed for your sterling silver jewelry pieces!

  3. Do you mind if I quote a few of your articles as long as I provide credit and
    sources back to your weblog? My blog is in the very same
    niche as yours and my users would certainly benefit from some of
    the information you provide here. Please let
    me know if this alright with you. Thanks!
