Chris Kerr, Super Genius? (I think NOT!)

Ok, I'm making teeny stamped metal embellishments to be used in my resin pendants. Remember Wile E. Coyote?  He would always call himself a "Super Genius" while creating complicated ways to trap the Roadrunner.  The traps always failed, leaving Wile looking like a "Super Loser".  

I stamped out a few teeny nickel disks to stamp with my smallest stamps.  Then I antiqued 'em and tried to shine them.  My fingers are too big for this job, so I came up with the super bright idea of tumbling them.
Great idea!  Oh yes!  NOT!  I lost a couple of them in the shot and I don't know if I'll ever ever find them.  They can happily live with their new shot family and avoid the fate of Ice Resin.

So, I pose this question to you, my lovely blog readers: Do you ever tumble teeny silver things?  Things that could easily be lost in the shot?  Do you have a trick or tip that could help me?  I'll be grateful forever if you could comment and share your Super Genius-ness.  

Have a Super Saturday!

Yes, I do tumble tiny silver objects. After they are finished, I pour all the shot into a small mesh strainer and then dump it out on a towel.

I then proceed to play in the shot searching for my treasure. It's actually quite soothing. A little like meditation. LOL

Have a great week, my friend.
