17 Jewellery Designs Using Liver Of Sulphur

We absolutely love using liver of sulphur to create a patina on our handmade jewellery designs - and so do our customers!

Liver of sulphur is a popular product among jewellers, used to create an antiqued, black or iridescent coloured patina on silver, copper, bronze, metal clays and with a little preparation - brass and gold too. If you love creating textures in your jewellery, using liver of sulphur is a great way to emphasise these textures and make them pop as you'll see from the designs below.
