This oval shaped steel tool consists of a hard steel 'blade' in a comfortable to hold wooden handle. When rubbed onto softer metals (such as sterling silver, gold and copper) it smooths and shines the metal so it is a really useful tool in a variety of jewellery techniques. It is useful when setting stones as it can be used to polish out marks made during the setting process, especially where polishing with rouge or tripoli could damage the stone. It can even be used to rub metal over a cabochon stone when setting in a bezel cup or using fine silver bezel strip. Burnishing is also a useful technique for hardening metals.

Burnishers are an essential for metal clay artists too as the soft nature of the pure silver make it particularly receptive to burnishing. For smaller metal clay pieces, burnishing is often all that is needed for polishing and textures can be greatly enhanced when raised areas are burnished, creating a distinct and interesting contrast. Errors made during engraving with a graver can be hidden by smoothing metal into unwanted scratches and similarly, other tool 'slips' can be rectified with the same technique. With all this in mind, you can see why this is an absolute workshop essential!
