About

Classically Geeky

I like classic lines but I am drawn towards statement jewelry, so many of my pieces are classic with the twist of being slightly larger than life. I also like to hide details that are only known by the wearer; such as etchings on the back of a ring. I believe it makes my jewelry feel a little more personal.

Everyone should have one piece of jewelry that is special, whether it is a statement necklace for special occasions, a ring that is worn every day, or a custom binary code bracelet with a special message. If I can create those pieces for someone, I am happy.

Most skin discoloration from jewelry isn't caused by an allergy-it's a reaction (oxidation) between our skin and the metals used in jewelry, especially when the jewelry touches areas that perspire. Some people have body chemistry that's more prone to staining than others. Salt content of the air, humidity, body lotion and many other environmental factors can also play a part.

Renaissance Wax protects the piece with a thin layer of jewelry grade wax, other options include a layer of spray lacquer or liquid enamel (clear nail polish) on the parts of the jewelry that make contact with the skin, done in thin layers to prevent flaking. All coatings will wear down in time depending on usage, but they can easily be reapplied.

A few quick tips~
To keep your jewelry from tarnishing when you’re not wearing it, store in a airtight container or zip lock bag. There are also many anti-tarnishing products available, such as anti-tarnish strips or jewelry boxes with anti-tarnish liner.

Don't leave in the bathroom, near heater, oven or in direct sunlight for long periods of time as the color will change. Items without a patina can be cleaned with polishing cloth or silver cleaner such as TarneX. If the product contains gemstones or semi-precious stones use a polishing cloth only as the stones could get ruined from liquid cleaner.
