So sick of verdigris on the jewelry I buy, especially when it's a big lot of jewelry thrown all together which creates more verdigris. This is a very time consuming task but luckily I like my quiet time and I like jobs that keep me busy. Even though not all the verdigris can be removed from the very intricate designs of a piece at least a majority of it can be removed to save the piece from further deterioration.

    Any tips on best practices to do this? I'm always too cautious

    AmberRose I use a tool that is tiny enough to get in the small crevices, it scrapes the verdigris off depending on how bad it has set in. Have to be careful oncce you reach the metal as it will either scratch the metal or take a layer of the metal off.
