Is there color in there or is that just a reflection. Looks lovely.

No reflection Cathy, that is a patina added to the silver with Liver of Sulphur.

Liver of Sulphur is used a lot by metalsmiths to add a patina or antique a piece of metal jewelry.

Depending on the heat of liver of sulphur and water and the length of time you keep the metal in the liquid and the repeated heating and cooling of the metal in between dipping, you get a range of gold to blue to purple to black.

I was playing around with the manipulation of the dipping to get different patinas. I think this may be too much, but I decided to go with it.

You can polish off the high spots to create contrast, and leave as much color or less color. Then it is sealed in a restorer's wax to preserve the color. I have been going all the way to black on most of my recent pieces, and polishing down to silver leaving an antique effect.

I don't know when to shut up do I? I will stop now,,,,,,,

Haha! No, don't shut up! It's very interesting. I had no idea you could get these kinds of colours. I love it!
