Here it is!!!! After much trial and error (and lots of frustration thrown into the chemical mix), here is my first successful etched piece. Unfortunately I only have this photo taken with my phone, so the clarity is poor.And after polishing...I am so happy with the final result :)
My checkout lady at my local supermarket shared this great tip. Cut a piece of straw and thread it onto your chain, then do up the clasp. This is great for travelling. Pop your chain in a snap lock bag or draw string organza bag and you will never have to worry about knots in your chain again.
