Natural metals will oxidize over time. With copper this is usually a desired effect but with brass, silver and bronze it may not be. Here are some tips on keeping your pieces looking new...
+ A polishing cloth is a simple way to clean pieces a needed.
+ Wear your silver often. The skins natural oils help protect the metal.
+ Remove your jewelry when cleaning or in chlorinated water.
+ Store your pieces in a cool dry place away from moisture.
Some of my work is intentionally oxidized. Using a jewelry cloth on these pieces will remove the patina.
It is best to put jewelry on AFTER make up, hair spray, perfume, creams etc. to avoid staining a.d store in a clean dry place.
* Please note: All of the jewelry is ground and polished to be smooth; however, metal is hard and ridged and must be handled with care. Some items are small and can pose a choking hazard. Please wear with caution and keep out of the reach of children.
