I am just starting out in jewelry fabrication, and am bewildered by
the number of finishing and polishing methods out there. What i have
used so far is
sand paper (fine)
3M micromesh sheets (600 to 8000)
There are so many other ways to finish and polish (bristle disks,
scotch bright, tripoli, tumblers with steel shot, the list goes on).
I am interested in finishing and polishing fairly simple fabricated
pieces (mostly flat surfaces so far), using gold and silver.
Any suggestions as to the fastest and easiest methods?
