Tumbler Learning Experience
Since this bead is a rather inexpensive bead and light in color it really hasn't bothered me, but it is noticable.
I should have known better. A few years ago I placed a sterling silver and time extensive bracelet in the tumbler. The wire turned out perfect, however every bead lost most of their color. It was a frustrating and expensive learning experience.
The moral of the story? Don't tumbler color enhanced beads or stones. Yes, I do know better. It must have been a blonde moment!
