Tumble is a small, female owned business based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. They design jewelry, home decor, wall hangings and more. They believe in shopping small and sustainable.
In the jewelry making process, after a piece has been designed, cut, shaped, hammered, and soldered it often looks discoloured, mangled, and almost unappealing.
But then, it gets tumbled.
When a piece of jewelry is in the tumbler it rolls around with hundreds of pieces of small stainless steel for hours. It’s like little hammers hitting the piece over and over. This hard metal confronting your fragile piece of jewelry relentlessly and yet it doesn’t get harmed or broken. Instead in the end it strengthens your piece and comes out brilliantly polished, looking nothing like it did when the process began.
OUR LIVES ARE JUST LIKE THAT.
We are fragile people figuring out who we are, what our function is and how we can thrive & make an impact. It is when we experience tension and challenges that we see how strong we are. We end up more polished, prepared and unshaken as we go through the world, day after day. That’s the magic.
Tumble is your story and it is ours and theirs and we are better for it.
