PRODUCT INFORMATION:

Odd Bird is about fun, not formality! However some care should be applied because it is handcrafted.
This is jewellery that should be treated like an art piece. It is not meant to be worn while swimming (not 100% waterproof) or playing sports (too delicate) etc.
It is best to remove rings when washing hands. Nor should the decorated dominoes be slammed about as if they are part of an actual domino game!
The resin dominoes come in white or ivory colours and vary in thickness. They come in 3 different sizes: Small (miniature) Medium & Large.
Small domino: 1 inch tall, 0.5 inch wide
Large domino: 2 inch tall, 1 inch wide, 1/4 inch thick
"Chunky" domino: same measurements as Large except 1/2 thick

Each decorated domino is printed and coloured by hand, then coated with glaze and sealed. Some may be embellished with a rhinestone or Swarvorski crystal. Each decorated domino process takes 2-3 days to complete. Each decorated domino is truly unique!
Please note that we're still trying to source a sealer that has UVB/UVA protection for the dominoes, which means that the colours will fade in constant/direct sunlight. Store pieces inside a drawer or jewellery box when not wearing.

FINDINGS:

Most of the findings are white (nickel) or gun metal (various mixed metals) with the exception of the earrings. The stud post styles are surgical stainless steel & lever back (dangling) styles will be specified as silver plate or white metal.

Any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask!
