Add patina as a silver finishing option
Currently silver can be ordered as "normal' and "glossy"
I would like to suggest adding a patina finish to it as a third option,
Patina is a black tarnish that forms on silver when it is submerged in certain chemicals. After the tarnish has formed a polishing round will remove most of the tarnish and cause the silver to shine again.
The more secluded parts like seams, dimples or recessed parts will remain dark.
This will add a great deal of detail to any product that is printed in sterling silver
I did say this in the forums but I'm not sure this is a good idea simply for the reason that one person's "lovely" patina is another person's "oooh, that's ugly!" There are just way too many variables when it comes to applying a patina; it is very much a personal, hands-on job. Besides, it's an easy job to do yourself without harsh chemicals - simply boiled eggs. Tutorial here: http://www.beadingdaily.com/blogs/daily/archive/2010/11/03/3-Easy-Ways-to-Patina-Metal.aspx
