Will Liver of Sulfur Harm Lampwork Beads
by Dale Armstrong
Question:

I am going to create a 16 gauge copper wire bracelet embellished with lampwork beads. Can I immerse the bracelet in liver of sulfur without harming the lampwork beads or should I first immerse the copper components before attaching to the beads? Thanks for you input.

Instructions
Answer:

Liver of sulfur is safe on plain glass, so it should be fine with your lampworked beads. Please be cautious! Use gloves and work in a very well ventilated area. If a glass bead is used that has a metal embellishment, such as silver or gold, be aware that the end color of that metal will not be the same as the copper.
