Get Oxidized. Oxidizded Sterling silver earrings,necklaces,bracelets

Oxidizing bright sterling silver..giving it a

warm,aged,collected look... I love the understatement it makes. It whispers...instead of yelling "look at me".

When water carrying dissolved silica is forced into a cavity in a rock and rapid cooling occurs, tiny crystals are formed on the surfaces of the rock cavity and form druzy. Any stone can have this effect, which results in a sparkly,crystallized surface.

Vintage Crystal Chandelier pendant

This was a custom design for a customer.....I just finished it and LOVE how it turned out.

A vintage cut crystal chandelier prism...I oxidized all of the sterling silver components to a rich,dark patina....then polished to a high shine.

I just love mixing a little old with a little new and having it come together as a finished piece.
