Bought the silver pair. Made my ears itchy

Suzy C responded

I am so sorry to hear this! My silver earrings are made from solid .925 Sterling Silver that is nickel-free and hypoallergenic, which is sourced from an award winning manufacturer. It is rare, but a reaction may indicate you have an allergy to pure (fine) silver or copper (the two metals that make up sterling silver). I also do not use any harsh chemicals to produce, clean or polish my items, to limit any risk of irritation ☺

RING PURCHASES

IMPORTANT - PLEASE ENSURE YOU GET YOUR RING SIZE CORRECT.
As your ring is a custom made item, I cannot refund your purchase if you give me the wrong size. This is in accordance with Australian Consumer Law.

Being professionally sized by a jeweller is the most accurate method. Most jewellery shops offer this service at no charge. When getting this done it is a good idea to get a sizing for both a thin and a wide band (as they will differ as wider bands need to be slightly larger to be comfortable).

Every Jeweller and Metalsmith has their own method for sizing rings. You can give me any standard measurement (UK/European or U.S) or even the inner diameter in millimetres (Metric Please!)

I do not offer engraving on rings. You can have this done locally once purchased.

FAQs

MINI METAL Oxidised pieces are Solid Sterling Silver that have been given a surface treatment to give them a darkened black/grey colour (please note that variations in computer monitors may affect the shade you see).

This treatment is considered to be semi-permanent & can soften and change over time. How this happens is dependant on wear, contact with water, body products, chemicals, & the wearers own body chemistry. To prolong the original finish and colour I apply a special protective wax over the surface.

Polishing or cleaning with abrasives/chemicals is not recommended unless you are deliberately wanting to alter the appearance of your pieces.

Specific care instructions for oxidised items are included with your purchase.
Yes - all MINI METAL Adornments are Nickel Free.

Wherever possible I use Sustainably Sourced Solid Sterling Silver and Gold that has been not been extracted from mines, that has been reclaimed and manufactured in an award winning environmentally-conscious facility and is extremely pure.

I also favour green and non-chemical process in my studio workshop.

Sterling Silver and 18Karat Gold (or higher) is hypoallergenic.
Gold Fill is very strong and durable and not to be confused with gold plating (there is up to 100 times more gold in Gold Fill than plated jewellery). A thick (1/20th) layer of 14K Gold is bonded under heat and pressure to a core of jewellers brass. If looked after it will last decades without showing signs of wear.
Tarnish is a natural (but annoying) process where precious metals oxidises & darkens. How quickly tarnish forms will depend on climate, body chemistry, personal products used, contact with chemical compounds, & how you store your pieces - in a jewellery box (or even a zip-loc bag) with anti-tarnish tabs is ideal.

Polishing cloths have polishing compounds & tarnish inhibitors imbedded. Use regularly to prevent/remove light tarnish.

Another great way to maintain/refresh/restore the luminous quality to your Sterling Silver is clean with bicarb soda. You can make a paste with water & apply/rub gently using your fingers or dip a damp, SOFT toothbrush into the bicarb soda & clean items gently, then rinse & buff with polishing cloth ♥︎
Whilst I take all due care to produce high quality, durable products, sterling silver and other precious metals are NOT indestructible. Many of my pieces are delicate in their look and nature and must be treated accordingly. If worn and handled with care they will last and give you pleasure for many years.

I want you to get as much pleasure as possible from wearing your MINI METAL Adornments, so I include general as well as specific instructions relating to finish/style of item you purchase.

See my other FAQ's for additional information or contact me, I am happy to help with any other queries :)
Matte and Satin (brushed) finishes are created by using an abrasive to purposefully apply very fine "scratches" to the metal surface. The result is a modern, very luminous appearance. This finish can be prone to tarnish/dullness a little quicker than polished finishes, as it attracts dirt/dust.

But it is so quick & easy to refresh and restore the luminosity of this finish! ⬇︎
- You can make a paste with water & bicarb soda & apply/rub gently using your fingers. OR dip a damp, SOFT toothbrush into the baking soda & clean items gently, then rinse, dry & store
away from dust & humidity. This will keep it looking fresher for longer (see my Care Instruction FAQ for additional info).
I supply quality standard weight sterling silver and gold butterfly backs with my stud earrings. If you notice that your backs begin to loosen over time with wear you are able to adjust them by squeezing the little "scrolls" together (take them off the earring post to do this).

The last thing I want is for you to loose one of you MINI METAL earrings, so I have done the utmost to make my stud earrings as secure as I can. I hand-make my notched posts to fit as snugly in the backs as possible. However, please remember this style is not infallible and you will need to take care whilst wearing. Whilst well made and generally durable, my items are not indestructible!

I do not recommend showering or swimming in any of my earrings.
