Our Creative Space...


After seeing many blogposts of 'My creative space' on several blogs, I finally gave in and decided to play along. As we are the two of us I had to change it in 'Our' instead of 'My' but further then that I will play among kootoyoo's guide lines. We have a new 'toy', a jewelry polisher/ tumbler. As we have many many vintage supplies this week mum has been having huge fun with it. We are doing our own things while the fairies are busy with polishing all the darkened metals!


Here it is, the little piece of magic. Simple but so hard working :) The round part just turns and turns while the soapy water and the shot are brushing against the metals.
And here the result, shiny and as good as new (maybe even better), yaay!


You can show your workspace too or explore other's at kootoyoo's blog!

  2. Mhh... I came back because I can't remember wether I did comment. Hahah... my brain is useless when it's hot!

    And I wanted to ask - there are tiny metal bits jumping in that thing? And that way it gets polished?

  3. Yes, indeed, Renate!
    There are stainless steel balls and nail shaped things in it, and then water and a polisher soap. The steel is doing most of the work while the tumbler is turning around. Very simple system but very awesome :)

  10. Wow, I've never seen one of those before as I'm not a jeweler but do have many friends that are. It's so awesome to learn something everyday even if it's not what I do! That is what is so great about my Houston Art Group called Houston Artisans, so much of a variety of things people can make and I really love getting to know how thier art pieces are made.
    Fabulous!
    Linda :)
