Silver/Tarnish



(-----) 2006

As jewelry artists, we need advice on how to protect our silver components from tarnish before they are used and after they are incorporated into jewelry. Opinions within our group vary. Some use sealed plastic bags; some silver cloth. Some follow the adage that the best way to prevent tarnish on silver is regular use of the silver. We need clarification for our own use as well as to pass on to our customers.

Silver cloth (pacific cloth) would be the most convenient and probably the most effective way. Possibly a professionally applied clear coat, but I do not see the need for that in most cases. A thin layer of a hard wax might work for some pieces.
