    how did you turn the copper silver? Shown in step 4 picture.

    This is great!!!!!!! I used it to make dirigible plum earrings - https://www.instructables.com/id/Harry-Potter%3A-Luna-s-Radish-Earrings/ - but I stripped down a few twist ties for wire, as I didn't have any. (: Thank you so much!
