Hello every one,
I just made this lovely bracelet with some copper beads in it. The clasp is copper also, but much more shiny than the beads. Do any of you know a easy way to make it a little darker so it matches the other beads better??

depending on how dark you want it, I use a 2-step technique of putting it in an ammonia fume for about an hour and then heating over my gas stove flame. A little longer if you want it really dark like this
