Contrasting Oxidized and Shiny Silver





I have been having fun with mixing very dark oxidized silver with very shiny polished silver.  I love the contrast between the light and dark in my designs.  The process takes a little longer, because I oxidize the components before I put the piece together.  So I have to plan ahead on what pieces I will make dark and what pieces I will keep shiny and bright.  After I am done, I machine polish the completed piece to a shiny finish.  Both the light and dark silver shine.  You can find more contrast pieces in my 1000Markets store and my Etsy shop.
