I thought you’d like to see a bit of the process of making jewelry – the little spheres, ovals and pins in my hand are stainless steel shot.
The “shot” is used to polish metal. Add the shot and a few drops detergent to a tumbler along with the metal to be polished. Here I’m polishing some sterling silver earwires I made!

Interesting, I though you polished by hand but this sounds like it might be easier.
Debra– You can polish by hand, too – but this is much safer and much more eco-friendly. You don’t have to deal with the silica dusts that can be put in the air with sticks of polishing compound…
Interesting – I never would have guessed that’s how it’s done.
Oh this is so interesting! Thanks for sharing this because I had no idea that is how you polished them.
That is so interesting! I guess you can only do that with “parts” and not finished pieces?
i like to make my own jewelries. im quite good with crafts.
Fascinating, yes I had not idea about how they were treated either!
