Frequently asked questions
Where do you get the insects that you use in your jewelry?

All the insects that we use have been found dead in nature. This is why so many of our pieces are one-of-a-kind! We never know when we will find another. The honey bees are somewhat of an exception. All of our honey bees were donated to us by friends with a bee hive. Their hive collapsed last year and they gave us the deceased bees.

Related: many of the insects we use we can only find at certain times of year (for example, cicadas are found in our area from July-September). This seasonal limitation means that we will likely sell out of some styles during certain times of the year.

Care instructions

-If needed, clean the resin lightly with mild soap and water but avoid submerging it in water

-Avoid leaving your jewelry in extreme heat (e.g. a hot car)

-Do not store in direct sunlight -- it could cause colors to fade

-Avoid storage near sharp objects because the resin can scratch

Please contact us if you have specific questions or concerns!

How do I care for any metal elements in my jewelry?

If your piece has brass, copper, or silver metal elements, they will develop a patina over time. Some people love this look, so feel free to leave the metal with a patina.

If you wish to remove your patina to make the metal more shiny again, add a small amount of lemon juice and baking soda together (it will bubble), put the mixture on the metal piece, and rub the mixture gently into the metal with 0000 steel wool. Then gently rinse the baking soda and lemon juice mixture off of the metal and pat dry.

Repeat as needed.

Please note that if your piece has a stone like turquoise incorporated in the style, do NOT use the lemon juice cleaning method, as it could damage the stone. In that case use a different metal cleaning method.

What is the meaning of the name Ocelli Creations?

The name Ocelli Creations was inspired by the phenomenon of "eye spots" in nature. Many insects have simple eyes or eye spots (coloration that look like eyes) that are called ocelli (ocellus is the singular form). For example some butterflies have big black spots on their wings that look like eyes.

Ocelli can be small and subtle, or big and bold, but either way they are a fascinating little corner of the natural world.
