About

Handmade Jewelry for Every Day Wear

Goldeluxe Jewelry is a small line of jewelry made with love by Libby Hopper-Trajkovski out of her studio in Detroit, MI. Creating jewelry in brass, sterling silver, 14k gold and 14k gold fill, she uses traditional lost wax casting and metal smithing techniques to create handmade pieces intended for versatility and every day wear.

Goldeluxe has been an ever changing journey for the designer - it began as a small Etsy shop selling jewelry created out of reclaimed vintage items - taking apart old, unloved pieces and creating new and repurposed pieces to be cherished again.

A passion for jewelry making led Libby to move to Brooklyn, NY. There she scored a job as production manager with a jewelry designer, and was able to learn all about the jewelry making process, as well as the ins and outs of running a jewelry business. Being around beautiful handmade jewelry every day inspired her to take a few jewelry making classes, and from there she had the skills needed to develop her handmade jewelry collection.

In December 2014, Libby moved shop from Brooklyn to Detroit to focus on Goldeluxe and get back to her Michigan roots. She lives in a historic neighborhood with her husband and dog and enjoys creating in her sunny studio every day.

Jewelry Care

Goldeluxe jewelry is made with love out of brass and sterling silver. All pieces are handcrafted, so please allow for slight variations or flaws - that's what makes them special! All earring posts, backs and hooks are either gold filled or sterling silver. Please read individual item descriptions for more information about materials used.

About brass: Brass is a lovely and affordable alternative to gold. Brass pieces that have frequent contact with skin (such as rings and earrings) have been lacquered. Depending on use, the lacquer may wear away over time. Wear is accelerated when jewelry is worn in the shower, while washing hands, when exposed to sweat and chemicals, etc. If your jewelry has been lacquered you will receive a brass care package with your order - in it is a brass care card with instructions and a polishing pad to remove tarnish.

Brass and sterling silver may naturally develop a darker patina over time as they react to the environment as well as the wearer's skin. Your piece will become unique to you as it settles in to your personal chemistry. If you prefer to keep your jewelry shiny and clean, try to avoid water (especially chlorine and saltwater) as well as lotions, perfumes, etc. Be sure to store your jewelry in a clean and dry environment.

If you want to give your jewelry a polish to brighten it up, there are many methods. Both brass and sterling silver are is easily cleaned with household substances such as white toothpaste, or by making a paste with lemon juice and baking soda. A typical jewelry cleaner or cloth works as well. If your piece has recessed lines that have been blackened, please do not clean with an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner - it will remove the black oxidation. If you are feeling lazy, your local jeweler would be able to clean up your piece as well.

About 14k gold fill: 14k gold filled jewelry is coated with a layer of 14k gold. It is similar to gold plated jewelry but the layer is thicker so it will not wear away like gold plated jewelry. Gold filled jewelry is a good choice for sensitive skin and will not tarnish.
