About

About The Artist

I love capturing the worlds wonders through a lens and creating jewelry that incorporates nature in the simplest way. When I began my journey with jewelry-making I was unaware of the outcome it would bring me. Through it all I became a self-taught metalsmith that began her own little jewelry business. My imagination is filled with creativity that led to the creation of many of my jewelry pieces today. I'm in love with nature and everything it has to offer, involving succulents into my jewelry was a must. With my father being a small business owner, I aspired to create a business of my own. All of my pieces are handmade and handcrafted individually in a home studio at the clients request. I hope that each piece of jewelry is just as inspiring to someone else as it is to me.

Yours Truly,

Mariela Belen R.

Frequently asked questions

Copper Jewelry

Copper jewelry is very special & may patina on it's own.

With proper care you can keep your ring as dark or as shinny as you'd like.

*If you'd like to keep your pieces shiny a polished pad & proper storage will do the trick. The natural oils in our body keep the copper bright so the more you wear your copper jewelry the brighter it will stay.

A patina is used to darken the copper to get a more earthy raw look.

Depending on how the piece was polished, each piece varies in it's own color. Some pieces might be darker/lighter then others.

For other FAQ scroll down to read more info on copper jewelry.

Why Is My Finger Turning Green?

Don't worry turning green is one of the lux. of wearing copper jewelry!
Copper is the oldest metal ore, People who are deficient in copper may benefit from wearing copper jewelry, since it can be absorbed through the skin therefor rubbing on your skin & turning your finger green.
The greening on your skin can be easily removed by rubbing some warm water and soap.
I no longer seal my jewelry with any jewelry sealer, wax or lacquer.
If you would like to prevent your finger from turning green a quick DIY trick is to seal the rim of your ring with clear nail polish or a lacquer from any of your local craft store. Keep in mind if you do seal your ring it will prevent you from absorbing any of the health benefits that copper can have.

How Can I Clean My Jewelry From Home?

Cleaning your jewelry with home products is fun and simple here are a few options to clean your copper jewelry at home.

1.) Combine equal parts of lemon juice and baking soda to form a paste and rub the paste on your jewelry. Rinse with warm water & dry thoroughly.

2.) Rinse the piece off with water and dry it thoroughly with a polishing cloth. (sunshine polishing pad from rio works best!)

3.) Rub your jewelry with a small amount of ketchup or tomato juice. Rinse well and dry with a polishing cloth.

Always remember to dry your pieces thoroughly & store them in a jewelry pouch to prolong your gems.
