Jewelry Care

General - Always remove jewelry and/or hair accessories when washing hands, showering, or swimming. Unfriendly chemicals can cause unpredictable reactions, so put jewellery on last after you have applied perfume or hair product.

Brass & Copper - the beauty of these metals is that they can develop a rich patina with wear. Exposure to salt air and water will bring on bits of green patina. To restore to a bright finish we highly recommend EZ Brite's environmentally friendly Penny Brite cleaner, which also works beautifully on silver!

Verdigris - Sealed with a clear coat for protection, our patina pieces will slowly continue to develop over time. To preserve the finish, avoid abrasion and do not use cleaners on the verdigris areas.

Black and Antique Patina - Sealed with a clear coat for protection, these pieces are coloured with a layer of oxidation. To preserve the finish, avoid abrasion and do not use cleaners on the oxidised areas.

Glass Enamel - our enamel pieces are made by melting a thin layer of glass over metal. Like most glass products this means that the finish is fragile, but will last for years if treated correctly. Avoid hard knocks, heavy pressure and do not bend. Do not submerge these pieces in water or cleaning solutions. Clean by wiping with a soft cloth. 

Steel - protect from exposure to moisture. Clean with a dab of oil on cotton or a polishing cloth.

Shell, Bone, Ivory, Gemstones (and other natural materials) - wipe clean with a soft cloth.

 

Eco what ? Socially Conscious how?

Striving to operate as an environmentally friendly entity is nothing new to us, but if you are curious as to the many steps we take to minimize our impact in our daily operations please read on as we've happily listed a few! We avoid harmful production processes and use non-toxic solutions to prep, clean and colour our pieces. All of our enamels are lead free. Packaging materials are reused obsessively, and where new 100% biodegradable. We use reclaimed metals and vintage and antique re-purposed materials where possible and all scrap metals are recycled. Our energy is supplied through National Grid's GreenUp option, so all of our electricity is generated from renewable resources. We donate a portion of our profits, including 1% of our net sales to environmental and humanitarian foundations and charities. Incorporating a sustainable approach into our lives outside work as well is important to us, in fact, that's where it started - we have our own organic garden, compost, reuse and recycle whenever possible and make a point to purchase organic, local and earth-friendly products.
