Here's A Tip For Making Your Beading Projects Portable

An Altoids candy container is a great way to make a beading project portable. It can easily fit in your purse or pocket and there is plenty of room for beads, a needle, thread, and a small pair of scissors or thread cutter. You can even add a container of Thread Heaven (thread conditioner). Line the container with beading mat fabric and you can use the container as a beading surface while on a plane, in a waiting room, at a sporting event or anywhere else where you would to pass some time.

How to Use a Rotary Tumbler to Polish Sterling Silver Jewelry

As many of us have discovered a rotary tumbler is a great investment if you make sterling silver or precious metal clay jewelry. It is the easiest way to bring shine to your silver pieces as long as you are not incorporating soft stones that can scratch such as pearls. Tumbling will also help to work harden the silver.



Here are just a few questions that I have been asked by those new to tumbling:



* How much stainless free lead shot should I use?

* What kind of shot… Continue
