We are both addicted to coffee, cream cheese pastries, and quiet time.

*********We're making some changes! Some of our acrylic silhouettes will be slightly modified or removed from our shop (acrylic versions only!) indefinitely while we focus on new materials and patterns. Among these pieces are: Melancholy Lashes, A Lady Ought, Curiouser, Lustre (and Jet Lustre), and Couture. We will make another announcement closer to these changes and removals! Please note that this will affect acrylic versions of the designs only; we have no plans to completely retire any design and they will all be available in either the new material or an updated version in acrylic. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us! Thank you!*******

ABOUT ACRYLIC:

Acrylic is a durable plastic commonly used in the automotive, aircraft, and construction industries. It is strong and somewhat flexible, but our elaborate pieces have very delicate, thin cuts and should always be handled and worn with care. These pieces will have a note in the listing alerting you that they are fragile.

Acrylic has a protective paper masking that stays in place while our designs are cut and formed. While our jewelry is lovingly and carefully created, please note that due to the nature of materials, handling, and the process the acrylic itself goes through during creation, there may be occasional super fine abrasions on the surface. These are inherent in the finish of colored, mirrored, and clear plastics and can only be seen (if present at all) when light bounces off the material. Mirrored acrylic may occasionally have markings from the heat of our tools along the edging as can be seen in this photo:

We will never send you a piece with noticeable or deep abrasions, scratches, or scuffing. We strive to provide the best quality materials with full disclosure about their natural characteristics.

ACRYLIC CARE:

It is important to note that, much like glass, acrylic will show fingerprints and dust. While acrylic is resistant to most chemicals, you should not clean your pieces with windows cleaners, acetone, benzene, or scouring compounds. Instead, please wash with a mild soap and plenty of lukewarm water. Dry with a soft cloth to prevent streaking.
