Copper tarnishes.  That's it's makeup.  you can clean it in a jiffy with a solution of lemon juice and salt.  Keep it in plastic container in the refrigerator and it will be able to be used for ages.  And since this piece looks as if it has a glass stone, no harm done.  Just dip it in, rinse it off.

Really fantastic work. I throw my vote in with Renaissance wax, I'm loving mine!

After hearing you guys' reviews of Renaissance wax, I ordered some from Amazon and hope to try it soon -- posting the results, of course.

I love the look of Viking knit, although I've never tried it.  I just love this piece you've made.  If you get bored with it, just let me know, lol.
