When you run a small business like Peggy Li Creations handmade jewelry, you learn to make the most of your jewelry resources and supplies and pick up any great tips to make your jewelry making life easier and simpler. OK, so here's a great tip I picked up from some wonderful jewelry making instructors. It's easy to make a homemade jewelry tumbler! What are tumblers good for? You can use a tumbler to help remove firescale from your soldered metal pieces, harden homemade headpins/earwires (that you make from dead soft wire), and polish/harden your sterling silver pieces!
Here's what you need:
- Clean plastic mayo/peanut butter/sturdy plastic jar with screw-top lid. Not too big, because you'll be shaking it with your hands.
- Mixed stainless steel shot.
- Stainless steel tumbling shot (mixed, all-purpose).
- Blue Dawn dishwashing liquid soap.
Here's what you do with your homemade jewelry tumbler:
- Put shot in the jar about 2/3 of the way in. Put a little dishwashing liquid in with the shot and water to cover in the jar.
- Wire your silver pieces together (so they are easier to fish out) and drop them in the jar.
- Shake, shake, shake! Give it a good shake for a few minutes. Remove your pieces, rinse well.
- Don't forget to dry your shot thoroughly when done. I like to spread it out across a towel.
Another great alternative is to take some tupperware and use that if you don't have a clean plastic jar. It leaks a little when you shake, so be careful!
