Hello all you brilliant metalsmiths,
Just had a thought-Does it seem reasonable that if you stored silver
in a vacuum it would not tarnish? Seven months ago I put a pair of
earrings in a plastic vacuum food pouch and sealed them. To date
there has been no tarnish. The problem is it is time consuming and
it H doesn’t look professional when I need to show it to a
prospective gallery or shop. I would like to put each piece in an
unclosed plastic bag for scratch resistance and then store about
50-100 pair of earrings, pendants etc. in a rigid plastic container.
Does this sound reasonable? Has this been tried by anyone? If so,
what equipment did you use?
Thanks for your help in advance,
