Problem with polishing technique

Forum: Jewelry Making


I am a jewellery newbie, learning my way through tutorials etc… I have created a pair of silver earrings. And I’m very happy with the result so far. I am now trying to polish them. I am using a Dremel flex shaft, with rubber discs (from coarse, medium to fine) and using rouge too as a compound. But I cannot get a seamless finish… it is shiny but I can see the cloudy marks where I changed directions. I tried again with small circular motion, which was better but not perfect.
I am wondering if my best bet would be to invest in a motor with bigger wheels. Before splurging I’d like your opinion, am I found something wrong here or am I using the wrong tool?

Thanks for your help
