We recommend removing jewelry before swimming, showering or exercising and avoiding spraying with perfumes.
Raw brass items will darken somewhat over time. We think this gives added character and beauty but if you prefer to keep your items bright, simply polish with a jewelry cloth. You can also use a bit of Brasso or diluted lemon juice on a soft cloth. Avoid stones when polishing. You can also store your jewelry in a zip lock bag to prevent tarnish.
All styles are nickel free.
We source a large variety of quality components from all over the world. Descriptions of components are listed on the website. Descriptions are also available for your reference on packing lists and, if requested, for your customers in the form of description stickers you can affix to carding.
We use genuine gemstones and pearls, never plastic. Gemstones are noted in inline descriptions, packing lists and description stickers.
Some styles feature quality Czech glass and Japanese Miyuki beads, most with truly beautiful finishes. There are also some styles with handblown glass globes.
