Buffing and Polishing
Buffing and polishing is not only the last step in making a piece of Sterling Silver jewelry, but one of the most important steps that can make a piece profitable, or not profitable. Before I begin a piece, I plan on how it will be polished and plan the cost/profit of that piece. Now and then, that has meant that I did not make the piece or changed the part that would require too much time to polish. The grey deburring wheel, using white diamond on a yellow treated wheel and zam on a white cotton wheel are taught and how to use them correctly. Safety is taught and stressed throughout this video.
