“Safer, ethical studio practices have been important to me since I began my studies in 2012. I have researched and implemented several alternatives to hazardous chemicals and processes, including electrolytic etching with copper sulfate solution, borax soldering flux, citric acid pickle, beeswax polish as sealant, and all natural cleaning products for my metals and the studio.”
