Q. "In your book Beaded Chain Mail Jewelry (which I own and is very good) you say to tumble dry and not with liquid. Can you explain this please?"
A. Thanks for your inquiry! Dry instructions refer to using rice as a tumbling medium to
polish or clean. For other kinds of tumbling, such as with steal shot
for taking off burrs, wet is the way to go. Dry, crushed walnut shell is
also popular for finish polishing fresh cut jump links.
