• Gemstones

    Info

    I love the rough, natural look and feel of more economical stones for my designs. Some stones are dyed to enhance color or coated for a more unique look.

    Care

    To prevent chips, cracks, and broken stones, avoid letting your stones slam into other hard surfaces like counter tops and being dropped on the floor.

    To prevent stones changing color, avoid getting them wet.

  • Plated Metals

    Info

    Metal plating is the process of adhering a very thin layer of one metal over top of another metal. I use nickel-free plated brass components to reduce the chance of allergic reactions.

    Care

    Plating can be worn or washed off pretty easily, so avoid wearing plated metals while sweating, swimming, or showering. Clean them gently with mild soap and water.

  • Cotton Cord

    Info

    Cotton cord is both durable and comfortable, and generally uses a more sustainable production process than faux leather.

    Care

    A little splash of water from washing your hands is one thing, but don't wear cotton cord in the shower or on your next white water rafting trip.

  • Raw Brass

    Info

    Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc, neither of which are common causes of metal allergies.

    Care

    Raw brass will oxidize over time depending on where you live, but can be cleaned with a soft polishing cloth since there is no plating to be worn off.
