The other day I made up some pickle with a mix of vinegar & salt in a little container. I had a copper piece to pickle and I didn't want to use the same solution that I use for my silver jewellery.
I used the satay stick to stir the solution and the plastic forks to get my jewellery piece in and out and when I'd finished I just rested them across the container and walked away. Today I walked past and noticed this rather disturbing but none the less pretty scene.
Little did I know the pickle had aspirations to be a science experiment and would use these implements to transform and attempt an escape :)
PS: for non jewellery makers - I'm not talking about the yummy crunchy green things we eat but a solution to remove fire scale after soldering!
