Even though I both tumble and hand polish all the jewelry I make, it is natural with brass to tarnish and darken over time. A polishing pad is included with your order so that you may restore the colour. Gently rub the brass part on the pad until you are satisfied with the colour.
Measurements for each item are stated in the listing's description. Additionally, I try to include at least one picture of a piece worn as a size reference. If you are still unsure, send me a message and I will do my best to help.
Some people may experience skin discoloration after wearing brass or copper earrings. This is a result of the body's chemical reaction to the metal. Skin pH as well as hormonal levels may trigger this, that is why it happens only to some people. Should this happen, try washing the discolored area with a little bit of water. You could also apply a layer of clear nail polish on the inner side of the brass part, so that you do not need to worry about this.
All orders are shipped in a padded envelope, and the jewelry is packaged in a little white, cotton filled box. Assuming that transit has been handled with a little bit of care, your pieces should be ready to give as gifts. If you require a special message included in the package, leave me a note during checkout.
My creations are not waterproof so please make sure you avoid contact with water including showering, swimming and submerging the pieces in water. Contact with oils, perfume and other chemicals should also be avoided.
Brass and Silver Jewelry:
Use baking soda or lemon with a small brush or toothbrush to clean your jewelry.
Leaving your jewelry in the open speeds up the metal oxidation process. I would advice you to store your clean, dry jewelry in sealed zip lock bags for better maintenance.
