Tumbled Stone Jewelry is made from a variety of smaller pieces of Gem Stones. Some of these stones I picked up while Rock Hunting, Hiking, or Hunting & Fishing. Some of pieces are left over from large pieces of Lapidary Rough that I cut into slabs and Cabochons. After I have 5 or 6 pounds saved up I go through and grind off all sharp points, deep pits, and cracks. I try to keep and enhance the shape of each stone and bring out its natural beauty. After all the grinding and clean up is done I put them in a tumbler with course grit (60/90) of Silicon Carbide and let them tumble for week or more. I then clean and inspect them to make sure all the stones are smooth with no cracks, pits or chips that can get grit stuck in them. I then put them back in the tumbler with finer grit of 220 and let it tumble for another week. After again going through the cleaning and inspection process I let the stones tumble in 600 grit for another week. I clean and inspect again and when all the stones look like they are already polished when wet. I tumble them for another 5 days or so in a final polishing compound (Cerium Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, or Lusterite). Ounce again I clean the stones and tumble with powdered Ivory Snow Detergent for a couple of hours. This last step thoroughly cleans and burnishes the stones to a high luster and beautiful shine. The Tumbled (polished) Stones are then made into Jewelry (Pendants, Earrings, Key Chain et.) To keep the cost as low as possible I use Sterling Silver, 14kt Gold Filled, Brass and Copper wire. To further reduce the cost I also use Gold or Silver colored base metal chains and settings.
