How To Oxidize Your Jewelry Using Liver of Sulphur

December 13th, 2010 Posted in Earrings by Steve | 1 Comment

Oxidizing-process-0.JPG

Occasionally I did receive inquiry from beaders about the wire used by Emi to make above similar finishing earring. All the while I only know the theory behind until I have attended Silversmithing class conducted by Emi. Today I’m going to show you how to do it, though not a very detail step by step, but should be able to give you a good idea of how to use the Liver of Sulphur to oxidize Silver (or Copper or Brass).

weave-earring-1.JPG

The above picture shown a pair of earrings crafted using sterling silver wires with Cubic Zirconia briolette.

the-detail.JPG

The detail – a weave technique taught in Step by Step Wire Jewelry Dec 2010/Jan 2011 issue.

Instruction:

oxidizing-process-1.JPG

To oxidize silver, you will need Liver of Sulphur and hot water. Make sure you do it in a well ventilated area, as the fume can be toxic.

oxidizing-process-2.JPG

Add a little bit of Liver of Sulphur to hot water until the water looks yellowish/brownish color.

oxidizing-process-3.JPG

Let’s watch the magic…

oxidizing-process-4.JPG

You will notice the color of your jewelry change slowly from white to blue/green/grey color.

oxidizing-process-5.JPG

This is how it looks after 60 seconds…

oxidizing-process-6.JPG

To achieve its darkest look, just immerse your jewelry in the solution in longer time, say approximate 3-5 minutes. Remove the piece from the solution and rinse with water. The result was a matte finish dark grey color (it’s not black).

oxidizing-process-7.JPG

In my project, I would like to have the earring in shine finishing. I need to bind the Cubic Zirconia Briolette with copper wires before send it for tumbling.

oxidizing-process-8.JPG

This was the result after tumbling….nice huh?

oxidizing-process-9.JPG

In final step, use very fine steel wool (#0000) to partially remove the oxidized surface and you will achieve the following antiqued finishing:

In case you are interested to make the above earring, feel free to do so.

Material Lists:
1) 16 gauge Sterling Silver Round Wire
2) 18 gauge Sterling Silver Round Wire
3) 20 gauge Sterling Silver Twisted Wire
4) 26 gauge Fine Silver Round Wire
5) 2.5mm Sterling Silver Beads
6) Cubic Zirconia, Tanzanite Color, Flat Briolette.
