I have a predicament that I'm just all sorts of confused about, and I'm hoping that someone will be able to help me. I have a pair of sterling siver earrings that are clip-ons, but I want to make them studs. They are 3 dimensional, so in the crevices there is a black paint to further this effect. The jeweler said that he cannot change the backing without melting off the black paint, therefore giving me an all silver earring. I know that there are liquid leafing products that come in gold, silver, pewter, etc, but is there a black? I have seen black antiquing glaze made by old world which is meant to go under a gold, silver, etc. leafing to change the effect, but is it possible to just use the black without putting another color over it? If so, I'm also not sure which supplies I would need, such as the sealer to put on before the black, and would I need to put something on top to seal the black in? Thanks for your help in advance, this has been driving me crazy and nobody can seem to give me an answer.

Thanks again,
Alicia =)
