I use Liver of Sulfur to artificially age (oxidize) the jewelry. Picture #1 shows what is looks like. It's very smelly stuff (like rotten eggs) that you dissolve in water. Gross green huh?
Picture #2 shows before and after the oxidation. Drop the silver in, wait a few minutes, then watch the magic happen! It comes out black and dingy, but after a little polishing - very cool!
Picture #3 - finished product!

I cleaned, reorganized and added to the workbench space last month. Hopefully this will spark more productivity and creativity. I have all sorts of cool ideas just waiting to be "brought to life". Right now I'm trying to get some new work and good pictures taken to use in a show application due this Thursday. The clock is ticking!!
