I am interested in knowing if anyone has worked with seeds/nuts in
their jewellery and if so have you any tips on protecting seeds with
any type of oil/lacquer to keep them fresh looking. I made a
necklace from small lychee/longan type seeds, gold leaf and gold
wire and although was very happy with the design, after several
wearings, the seeds looked quite old - obviously from rubbing on the
neck, oils, hair etc. Any suggestions?
