Help! How to clean jewellery from Afghanistan, Morocco,Ethiopia etc like many mixed metal pieces members show here?

I've rediscovered my stash bought mostly in the '90s including large amulet cases with dangles, metal drops, chains , lapis slabs, glass and coral bits set in shallow mounts with what looks like bitumen, some enamel etc. and if I ever want to show them off or do business with them then they must look glowing not drab, whether the metals themselves are silver, tin, nickel, brass, copper, iron, gilded, or a mix..



Vinegar? Salt? Lemon juice? silver dip? detergent? woolwash? ultrasonic?… Continue

Article about Chevron beads

"Jewellery History Today" is a slim magazine published by the Society of Jewellery Historians in UK and circulated to its members.

I've contributed an article in the latest edition (issue 9 Autumn 2010 ISSN 2042-8529) entitled "the Chevron bead and its simulants" with illustrations of a number of individual beads from my collection.

I hope some people here will be able to see it!

I may be helpful if you need to identify your beads more accurately.
