Here is a little treat that I discovered going through my Mom's jewelry...
A copper ring that is engraved with what looks like roadrunners, and small saguaros! She must have picked it up on one of her trips out west...or maybe my Dad had brought it back to her from one of his trips (he recruited at university's at times).
Anyway, it was all tarnished, so i researched ways to clean copper, and tried the first method, which was to pour vinegar over it, then add salt. As soon as i poured in the salt, the ring changed color...right back to it's lovely shiny new copper look...and i fell madly in love!
I think the green finger that results will be well worth the Mom love I feel while wearing it.
Happy Cactus Monday everyone!!!
