Restoring Antique Silver Candlesticks: A DIY Guide

In the last few years, I have been leaning toward ensuring that I'm living more environmentally friendly. From buying most of my wardrobe preloved on sites like Vinted, and buying second-hand furniture through to finding hidden treasures at the auction house (which happens to be on my doorstep). Previously, I lived my life through trends and always wanted the latest "things" but it just doesn't excite me in the way that it used to and I'm a sucker for making my money go further. Today,  I'm thrilled to share with you a passion project of mine: restoration. It's something my Grandad and GreatGrandad both did religiously, we would take broken items to them and give them an hour or two pottering in their garages/sheds they would always bring back our very much loved items fixed and looking like new. One area that I'm really interested in is restoring silver, be it jewellery or items like Candlesticks. Whether you've inherited a set from generations past or stumbled upon a hidden gem at a flea market, bringing life back to these exquisite pieces can be a fulfilling endeavour. So, roll up your sleeves and let's dive into the world of DIY restoration of items such as silver candlesticks!
