About

Handmade contemporary artisan gemstone jewelry

What started out as a simple quest for a perfect pair of earrings, a pair that I could wear to work and then out at night, turned into an obsession. Unable to find them, I decided to make my own….which eventually lead to numerous classes from stone setting to metal smithing.

My need to be discerning and selective is something I take great pride in and it translates to jewelry made with only the finest quality hand selected gemstones, pearls and gold-filled/gold vermeil or sterling silver components. I hope the style, quality, versatility and value in kabyco will shine through.

My goal is for others to have jewelry that they feel good wearing, a “go to” piece - comfortable, hip, while still being classic - that is sure to enhance any outfit - while never over shining who you are.

I stand behind the quality and craftsmanship of kabyco jewelry.

Oh...and the name “kabyco”?
It’s a combo of a childhood nickname...“kaby” with “co” for company... :)

How to store & care for your jewelry -

Store your jewelry in a container and prevent pieces from moving around. It is advised that you keep your pieces wrapped up in tarnish prevention cloths or an air-tight protective bag. A plastic zip-lock bag is ideal.

Using a polishing cloth is the safest & easiest way to remove tarnish and can be used to polish both sterling silver as well as 14K gold filled metals, however not for gold vermeil.

Sterling silver should be stored away from moisture and oxygen and excess contact with water should be avoided (remove before showering and swimming if possible). Moisturizers, perfumes, hair and body products will also hasten the tarnishing process so it is best to apply those before your jewelry. Skin chemistry can the also be the culprit in a piece that is tarnishing quickly, this can't really be avoided but is not generally harmful and does not indicate a problem with the metal.

Both oxidized silver and gold vermeil pieces undergo a special surface treatment. Oxidation is a natural process that happens over time naturally to sterling silver. Never use any abrasive methods to clean these pieces, as these will remove the surface treatment all together. The best way to care for these pieces is to rub them gently with a soft cloth (cotton jersey is great) lengthwise in one direction. If they remain dull or have residue on them you can first soak them in warm soapy water and gently go over the area with your fingers and then pat dry thouroughly (never rub). The black oxidation will occasional change over time and the patina may change. It depends on individual body chemistry as to if the tarnish will wear off as well as how much contact the jewelry has with skin. The patina will change as the piece ages, making your piece unique to you, and growing more beautiful with wear.

FOR OPALS -
As with all opals, Ethiopian opals should not be cleaned by steam, in an ultrasonic cleaner, with any harsh cleaning agents, or warm soapy water because of its hydrophane nature – cleaning an Ethiopian opal with soapy water or other liquids could cause contamination of the gem if any residue remains in the opal after drying. Trapped residue could reduce play of color, negatively affect transparency, change the gem’s bodycolor, or cause internal cracking.

AFTER EVERY WEAR, THE BEST CLEANING METHOD FOR ETHIOPIAN OPAL JEWELRY IS TO USE A CLEAN, SOFT, DRY MICROFIBER CLOTH TO GENTLY REMOVE FINGERPRINTS, DIRT, RESIDUE, AND OILS.

Short-term contact with plain water does not seem to harm Ethiopian opals. If the Opal gets wet from rain or other cause, simply dry off surface with a clean microfiber cloth and then let the stone naturally air dry for 24-36 hours – any absorbed water will leave the stone and its play of color should be restored to its previous state without any cracking. Do not attempt to speed up the natural air-drying process by applying heat of any kind.
