Every order comes with a care instructions card. Resin is pretty durable, but if it does get scratched, simply buff it using plastic polish or vegetable oil using a soft cloth. Handle this jewelry like your other silver jewelry. Silver can be polished to restore shine. Also, these pieces are durable enough to be cleaned in your jewelry cleaner- just don't use any chemicals on them. The jewelry is waterproof but try to sustain from prolonged water contact.
Yes! I use only broken, obsolete circuit boards from computers, calculators, and cell phones. The color you see, called soldermask, is usually green for circuit boards because it's easier for manufacturers to detect defects. However, other colors are used too, which is why my jewelry comes in a rainbow of colors!
Absolutely! While some older circuit boards may contain heavy metals, they do not pose a threat because it's in very low concentrations and you'd have to eat them to receive exposure. Furthermore, my jewelry is encased in resin and metal so the circuit board will never actually come in contact with you. This is really important! I also do not make or sell "bare" circuit board jewelry because they are made from fiberglass, which can irritate your skin.
Just send me a conversation or email (CircuitBreakerLabs@gmail.com) with any project, no matter how simple or complex, and I'll get back to you with options, a timeline, and price quote. Simple requests (like if you want something with a chip on it or a longer chain) can be made in the note to seller box at checkout.
Every item will come in a gift box with a circuit board design. To conserve paper, I never include an invoice, so if it's being shipped as a gift, no worries! If you want to include a gift message, let me know what you'd like it to say in the notes to seller box, and I'll hand write it on a circuit board note card.
