Tarnished Sterling Silver???

Got tarnished sterling silver jewelry? I certainly have some, but do not want to use a chemical solution since it may damage the beads: semi-precious, precious gemstones and freshwater pearls. A cotton cloth works, however does not get rid of the tarnish from the intricate details of small jewelry items. So here is something you can naturally clean your jewelry with without damaging the gemstones.

a small bake pan (I used a 9" round)
1 sheet of foil to cover the pan (foil shiny side up)
1 tablespoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
warm water (microwave 1 cup for 2 min)
Sorry I forgot to add the salt in the photo! Put the baking soda and salt scattered in the pan, then put your jewelries in. Pour the warm water slowly in pan, see photo below. Wait until the water cools, then rinse the jewelry with warm water and dry with a paper towel.
Here are the before and after photos:

Now my jewelry looks as good as new! Hope this helps you out!

Carnival Blog - Summers Here!

Summer’s here! My neighborhood is beautifully peace and quite. The weather is just awesome (when it doesn’t hit triple digits!). When it gets this hot I stay indoors and love doing home improvement projects during this time of the year. My home is where the heart is! Here are photos of past summer projects.

Nook Before & After

Family Room Before & After

Notice how warm it feels with the colors? All in all, my interior house was painted with 9 different colors by my husband and I! This summer’s project is getting my studio set up for my Etsy shop! Stay tuned...
During cooler summer days, I spend time in the garden. I love to watch the flowers or trees bloom with vibrant colors of summer. Here are some of my garden photos.

Buganvilia tree & the flower is a dahlia called Elma Elizabeth

Dahlia: Sir Alf Ramsey and Melody Dora
One of my first jewelry pieces inspired by my passion for flowers.

I also have a grape plant which inspired me to make grape cluster earrings!

Do you see the bird nest on the right photo?

Aside from projects, summer time is vacation time! This is a whole new topic....until next time!
