I will gradually be updated this blog

Arts Hamilton no longer features artists' work so I will be selling through the internet and perhaps home parties. 

I discovered something interesting on the internet tonight.  Some of the copper jewellery I had at Arts Hamilton had tarnished so I wanted to make my own polish.  It worked so well that I am amazed.

It is a combination of 1/4 cup lemon juice and about the same of salt.  Put the copper jewellery in the solution which could be a jar or tight fitting container.  Shake, shake, shake, then immediately take it out and wash it with water and blot it dry.

Note how well the homemade polish worked.  It was very tarnished before.  The jewel is Swarovski topaz.

Emerald firepolish beads with copper rondelles and copper chain - fits over the head.

The results of the lemon juice and salt were amazing. It was easy to make at home with ingredients that you would have at home and works like a charm!  The trick is not to leave the jewellery in the solution after the three or four shakes.  This mixture can be saved and used again and again. 

Here are some more pictures of a more tradition look which is classic.  They are sets.

Bohemian stones, matching pierced earrings (can be made into clip-on earrings as well.

Black Bohemian and crystal Bohemian beads with dangle.  Black earrings go with this.

My prices are reasonable as I don't have a huge overhead.  I have paypal.  I take personal cheques from people that I know.  Everything is in Canadian funds, plus there is tax and shipping and handling charges.

I will be updating this blog with more designs when  I have the time.

Come back again for a visit!
