Hammered Mini Threads
hand-hammered and shaped gold-filled wire ear threads - beautiful, everyday staple item!
you will need your darkened brass jewelry, a bottle of brasso (on amazon for $6 but also available at most pharmacies and grocery store)s, and an old rag that you don't mind getting gross.
pour a dime sized amount of brasso on one corner of your rag and squeeze it together to spread it out a little on the cloth
begin rubbing the brasso portion of the rag along your brass piece, the more you rub the shinier it will get!
