Tumbling silver and brass together?

by Angela

I've read that you can tumble copper and silver together, but what about brass and silver? Is it safe? Thanks!

Stacy's Answer:

Hi Angela! I tumble all three metals together without any problems. (I make a lot of jewelry using a combo of silver/brass/copper and they tumble just fine) More important is to tumble oxidized with oxidized and bright with bright as sometimes the excess oxidation can taint the bright metal with a patina you may not want. But as far as the metals go...tumble away!
