Step Two: The PolishingThis is just the first polish I provide to my pieces (I did tell you I was a polish fiend!). Start with adding some Luxi Blue Polishing Compound to your leather pendant wheel and start walking around the base of your silver, I like to do this in circular movements.

I ended up being a polishing fiend when I started developing my own jewellery, there was something about taking a filthy piece of silver and rubbing it to the point I could see my own crazed reflection that had me in wonder! So today I am going to share how I polish a pair of my simple hexagon studs!
You will require: Polishing Compound– Luxi Blue Universal Polishing Compound (997 429) Pendant Motor– Dremel 3000 Rotary Drill Kit and Flexshaft (997 6201) Eveflex Rubber Burr– Extra Fine (970 180) Emery Paper Grade 500 (973 070) Emery Paper Grade 1200 (973 090) Emery Paper Grade 2000 (973 110) Leather Pendant Wheel (999 ACQ) Polish Cloth (997 423) Renaissance Wax Polish (998 118R).
Step Five: WaxingDont worry I dont mean the uncomfortable waxing! I indicate adding a wee stain defense coat, this is the last stage of my polishing program and is likewise the peaceful part, it is where you take five minutes to breathe and actually value the work that enters into your jewellery!
To utilize the wax, I pop a wee bit on a cotton swab (You do not want a lot) and offer my earrings a light layer of wax and leave to sit for 20 minutes. After twenty minutes provide your piece a wee enthusiast with a cloth which is done.
Step One: The SandingI always start with sanding down my pieces, this part is rather methodical as I go from grade 500 then 1200 and last but not least 2000. When sanding, I always like to sand in the exact same instructions to eliminate any fine scratches.
Step Four: Another PolishGo back in with your Leather Pendant Wheel and Luxi Blue Polishing Compound. I never ever hurry the last polishing stage as this is where you see your style start to come to life! When you have ended up with the polishing, give it a wee enthusiast with a polish fabric, if you discover there is still some scratches repeat steps three and four!
Save this for later on.

Step Three: Getting Rid Of ScratchesOnce you have actually given your piece its very first polish, take your extra great rubber burr and review your piece again, I do this in circular motions and also following the shape of the jewellery. I suggest doing this as soon as or twice.
Our jewellery is greatly influenced by the Art Deco period and a focus on geometric shapes and is likewise individually handmade in sterling silver from every solder join to that last polish you can know your jewellery was made specifically for you!
