metal allergies

Some people are allergic to certain metals and will experience contact dermatitis when their skin is exposed to these metals, because jewelry often lays on the skin for long periods of time.  The most common metal allergy is to nickel, which is commonly found in more inexpensive jewelry and sometimes brass. Rest assured, I carefully source all of my materials and they are nickel free and lead free.  

Not sure if you or someone you know has an allergy?

No Problem!  Most of my items will offer a surgical steel, stainless steel, or sterling silver option for your convenience.  You are welcome to purchase what you like, and think is best, and if you find later that what you bought will not work I do accept returns, exchanges and refunds.  I will even pay for the return shipping.  And feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

  1. Find a necklace that you already have (that is the approx length of the necklace you would want the new one to be)
  2. Lay the necklace flat and measure the length of it with a ruler or tape measure
  3. Based on the length of the necklace you have, find the desired length for the necklace you want
  4. and if you do not see the length you want, feel free to contact me with any questions or requests, 'll be happy to help however I can!

earring types

All of my earrings can be made with the existing earring type (as it is usually shown) or can be changed for a different type or style for your liking.  We all have our preferences, and that's okay!  (My ears aren't even pierced, so I even offer clip ons and screw ons)

For an easy reference, here are images of the types of earrings I offer, along with what I call them:

bracelet sizing

The bracelet size refers to how the bracelet fits on your wrist....NOT the actual length.
Most bracelets that you find in a store or market today are a "standard size" of 7" inches meaning it comfortably fits a wrist that is 7" inches around.  Most of my bracelets are this standard size, but since everyone is made differently or have a preference of loose or snug, the bracelet size can be adjusted or made in another size that you can select before adding to cart.


 HOW TO FIND OUT YOUR BRACELET SIZE
                    - You will need:

                       - a fabric measuring tape (seamstress tape measure)

                          - OR a long strip of paper (with a width comparable to the width of bracelet you want) and a ruler to measure the length

                          - OR string and a ruler to measure the length

  • use the item needed above (tape, paper or string) and wrap it around your wrist where you want the bracelet to sit
  • the actual measurement of your wrist is the bracelet size ONLY IF you like your bracelet snug with little to no movement
  • BUT IF you like your bracelets to have some movement, loosen the tape/paper/string to your preference and record the measurement - this will be your desired "bracelet size"

how to take care of your jewelry

Protect from Environment   

  • avoid prolonged exposure to damp or humid air, heavy perspiration, moisture, water
  • avoid contact with perfumes, cosmetics, chemicals, hairsprays, oils, gases and lotions
  • ensure that these things are properly dry before putting on jewelry - jewelry should always be the last thing you put on


Clean Carefully

  • if exposed to any elements mentioned above, be sure to clean carefully before putting the jewelry away
  • use a clean, soft cloth to wipe down
  • if you have to, you can use a damp warm cloth with very mild soap to spot clean, and then wipe dry with soft cloth
  • avoid soaking and avoid harsh chemicals and cleaners - this can remove finishes and alter coloring


Storage

  • take time to wipe jewelry with clean dry cloth before storing - it can remove traces of moisture, oils, and debris from wear
  • avoid storing jewelry in or near the bathroom
  • try to store jewelry in an air tight container or ziplock baggie
  •  for jewelry made with sterling silver and copper - add tarnish strips or a piece of chalk to jewelry storage containers to help with oxidation/tarnishing
