Art Jewelry Magazine - Video: Using a Tumbler to Polish Metal

Here is a link to how to use a tumbler. When I have completed a jewelry piece, I always finish it with 20 minutes in a tumbler. It hardens the silver and provides a high sheen and a beautiful polished look. It is a well worth the extra step.

What if the piece contains pearls or semi-precious stones. Can it still go in the tumbler?

Karen said...

yes, just be careful if the pearls are fragile, and what soap you use. Sometimes I put the piece in with the semi-precious stones alone first and then complete it with pearls or fragile beads after I tumbled it
