tumble jewelry - Pelota Hoop Earrings
Thin Hoop earrings with a mirror finished ball accent. Available in Sterling Silver & 14k Gold Filled.
Tumble is a small, female owned business.
In the jewelry making process, after a piece has been designed, cut, shaped, hammered, and soldered it often looks discolored, mangled, and almost unappealing.
But then, it gets tumbled.
When a piece of jewelry is in the tumbler it rolls around with hundreds of pieces of small stainless steel for hours. It’s like little hammers hitting the piece over and over. This hard metal confronting your fragile piece of jewelry relentlessly and yet it doesn’t get harmed or broken. Instead in the end it strengthens your piece and comes out brilliantly polished, looking nothing like it did when the process began.
OUR LIVES ARE JUST LIKE THAT. We are fragile people figuring out who we are, what our function is and how we can thrive & make an impact. It is when we experience tension and challenges that we see how strong we are. We end up more polished, prepared and unshaken as we go through the world, day after day. That’s the magic.
