I've been making ear wires all day. It's a chore I've been putting off for a while but my earring inventory has gotten so low, I had no choice (show season is just on the horizon - must have zillions of earrings!). I have to say, though, that the new tumbler I received for Christmas makes this task almost a pure delight.
Boy, does it cut down on the clean up! I plop the pieces in after I pickle them and a little while later I have sparkly, blindingly shiny silver ready to be transformed into snazzy ear wires. Love it! How did I ever live without one for so long?
