The primary element in all kinds of steel is iron. Rust is a common occurrence because of the formation of iron oxide. This happens when iron and oxygen react in the presence of moisture present in the air. However stainless steel is an alloy of iron, carbon and other metals and provides long-term resistance to corrosion.
Before cleaning, you should make sure of certain things, such as the stones should be fitted properly. Make sure that mounting and all the clasps, prongs, etc., that fasten the piece together are tight enough to clean. If you are not sure about how to clean your delicate piece, it is important to talk with your jeweler before using any homemade cleaning solution on it. Now, the question that comes to our mind is how to clean it? To answer this, let us tell you that there are various ways of doing so.
There are some stones that are very difficult to polish. Only course grit or medium grit is used for one to three days when Wonderstone, which is a soft rhyolite, is tumbled. This produces nice, rounded stones which show the colors and banding well. Sandstone, calcite, onyx, limestone, glass, and obsidian also fall into the category where there may be veins in the rock that will not polish. Some types of rocks are brittle, which means that they tend to chip instead of getting polished. Other reasons for the stones to remain unpolished are process-related. If the earlier stages are rushed, then scratches are left in the rocks that the later stages cannot recover from. If the tumbler and stones are not cleaned well between stages, then the grit from a previous stage could be scratching the rocks and preventing them from polishing. If you have a mixture of harder stones and softer stones in your tumbler, only the harder stones will take a high luster polish. Best results are achieved when all the rocks in a batch have similar hardness. If a stone breaks during the later stages of tumbling, the sharp edges will scratch the other stones, so get rid of them before the final stages of polishing.
Now, begin with Row 2. Insert the hook in the vertical wire that is formed in the last row. Do it three times. You will have to note here that, this inserting includes the last lp as well. Not there are 4 lps on the hook. Well, yo and pull up through 2 lps all three times. Still do not turn your work.
