It's fun to work with Jess at Dakota Stones because she tends to be fearless when it comes to trying new, innovative things. I see her take risks with a just the right amount of bravery and blasé to get the job done, and this polishing project was no different. We took the already beautiful, rough heishi beads from the dsPremier line and polished them with the JOOLTOOL, what turned out to be an amazing polishing kit. I, of course, watched from the sidelines, hoping it wouldn't grind the beautiful stones to dust or break them apart somehow. I was actually amazed at the technology of this machine and you can find out more about it HERE.


The final polished result? Stunning. While the original stones are raw, textural and beautiful in their own right, the polishing definitely intensified the colors and revealed a natural luster. Very cool. I'd say it's a win/win either way you go.
