Just received my package today (well before scheduled) and I am thrilled! The packaging was so professional and showed such amount of care. Also, the ornament was very sturdy and made out of high quality material. It exceeded my expectations and I am so happy I ordered this. Thank you!

The detail and quality of craftship is very fine. The finish is beautiful and the construction is heavy and sturdy with a good thick stem. We love this happy sunshine knob and wish we had been able to purchase a moon to go with it. (Hint)

What materials do you use to make your products?
We use a variety of materials, but our most frequently used materials are lead-free pewter, 24k gold plating, rose gold plating, sterling silver and gold filled findings.
About the plating:
Gold adheres very well to pewter, but it will eventually wear off.
Here are a few things that could effect the longevity of the plating.
-Extreme temperature change can in some circumstances affect plating.
-High impact such as dropping your jewel on a hard surface
-Exposure to ultrasonic cleaners
-Leaving jewelry carelessly with each other or letting it rub against other hard surfaces can create scratches.
Are all pieces exactly the same?
There will be slight variations as each piece is designed, cast and finished in our Dallas, TX studio. The finish on pewter pieces are “live” and therefore will tarnish with time. Pewter items can be polished with a PEWTER polish in order to restore their sheen.
Do you do custom orders?
Yes, we do! f. is for frank is available for private or commercial projects. We will work with you on designing a piece just right for you or your company. We are able to do runs from 1 to 1000’s. Please contact us to discuss your ideas!
