Jewelry Care & Information

About our Process

We work with an eclectic mix of materials that include polymer clay, cellulose acetate, freshwater pearls, 14K gold-filled metals, and semi-precious stones. Each color is individually mixed and pigmented in our studio before shapes are cut and sculpted. From there, we heat every small batch until the pieces are fully cured to a durable, slightly flexible permanent state. Once cooled, each piece goes through a rigorous finishing process which can include multiple rounds of polishing, sealing, and drilling. Finally, we assemble the finished components into one-of-a-kind sculptural jewelry. 

How to Care for Your Jewelry

Be sure to store your jewelry carefully away from humidity, direct sunlight, and other metal pieces that might scratch the softer surfaces of polymer clay or acetate. Please remember that pearls and other delicate gold-filled parts can be damaged by rough handling, so take care while wearing and removing jewelry. 

Gold-filled metals contain a minimum of 5% gold (100 times more than gold plated!) which is bonded to a core of high quality jeweler's brass. This means that it is more compatible with sensitive ears, and resistant to tarnish, although individual body chemistry influences this greatly. Gold-filled jewelry can easily be cleaned with a jewelry polishing cloth. Take care of makeup or dirt buildup on clay and other materials with a gentle swipe from a soft cotton pad and a bit of rubbing alcohol.

Brass and bronze metals may tarnish and darken over time if exposed to water and oils from the skin, but can be cleaned with a soft jewelry cloth (sunshine cloth) and/or tarnish remover. 

All jewelry is nickel free. Please see individual product descriptions for more information.
