5 Ways to Clean Silver Jewelry


Great tips for cleaning jewellery!

Originally posted on Corey Egan Metalsmithing:


When it comes to silver jewelry, it’s hard to not bring up the big, grey elephant in the room: Tarnish.

It’s one of the most common complaints I’ve received during my years working in jewelry studios and galleries; removing tarnish is a chore. Its presence in our jewelry collection brings us pause each time we’re choosing what to wear. And, unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be one cure-all method to remove tarnish on every piece.

Over the years I’ve used each one of the 5 methods below to remove tarnish from hundreds of designer jewelry collections—no joke! Not all silver jewelry is created equal; differing alloys, finishes, and presence of gemstones all come into play when finding the right method to clean.

These 5 methods are relatively simple. They require items found in your kitchen or at a local jewelry store. So, without further delay, let’s dig into the basics.

Amazing work by Jim Dingilian!

Artist Uses Smoke & Glass Bottles To Create Works Of Art

You know the saying one mans trash is another mans treasure well in this case art piece. Jim Dingilian  a New York artist has found an amazing use for empty glass bottles. He takes the empty glass bottles and coates the interior of the bottle in black smoke then once settled, he uses a fine brush and carefully brushing the interior of the bottle he creates amazing art works. The art works though beautiful have a dark and mysterious feel that are dripping with a sense of suburban decay. 

The idea of using discarded glass bottles to house scenes of suburban decay was intentional and perfectly fitting; “When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artifacts of consumption, delight, or dread. As art objects, they…

Colin the Hedgehog

It’s been awhile since my last blog and I have been very busy designing new woodland tea towels. Hopefully they will be finished soon, there has been awful lot of redesigning. So I thought I would give you a sneak preview and introduce you to one of the characters Colin the Hedgehog.


Colin is a tea connoisseur and is well thought after in the woodland world. You will always find him in the bottom of a tea cup sipping the most delightful tea. His absolute favourite tea is Tweeting with a splash of milk and half a tea spoon of sugar.

Let me know which woodland animals you would like to see and what they should be getting up to!
