Tumbling Aurora Borealis (AB) Crystals

by Karen Watson.

question-mark-originalI’m making special jewelry for my daughter for her birthday in September. The wire I used was good quality gold wire.

I used Swarovski AB Crystals. Now I want to work harden the wire. I have a tumbler I use with stainless steel shot for most wire jewelry, but this is such special jewelry, I don’t want to take any chances with it.

Is it safe to tumble these crystals or will they lose the AB effect in the tumbler?
