I crochet with 18 K wire. I have about 6 pieces where the gold is
getting darker/browner. It really stands out in my case when I am
doing a show, and you can really tell that it is “tarnishing” ?
Customers question if it is gold. I purchase all of my gold from one
supplier. And the tarnishing seems to be coming from older pieces. I
tried to clean it with a Q-tip and some Tarn.x, and it didn’t go back
to the bright yellow color, but is more pink.
Help!! I would rather not take apart all these pieces to either
clean or recycle. Any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
