How to care for your jewelry
Most importantly, please do not shower, swim, or exercise while wearing your gold filled or sterling silver jewelry. Extra care must be taken to ensure that your new handcrafted jewelry will last you many years.
Also, please remember that due to the delicate nature of dainty jewelry, sleeping with your jewelry on is not recommend, as movements during sleeping can cause breakage.
MOISTURE, salt water, chlorine in swimming pools, soap and perspiration take their toll on fine jewelry. Apply self-tanners, sunscreen, lotion or perfume and allow them to dry before putting on jewelry.
If you jewelry gets wet, pat it dry immediately with a soft cloth.
Customization can only be done on one side. All my items are hand stamped by me.
That means I use a hammer to hit a metal stamp into a disc. When this is done it leaves a slight impression on the reverse side, which is very normal for all hand stamped pieces.

Bronze is an alloy made of copper and tin, has a lovely warm golden color, and is an affordable alternative to 14k gold.
Bronze is durable, easy to clean, and will last for decades with proper care. They are great options for beautiful and affordable jewelry.
One thing to keep in mind, the copper content of these metals can oxidize in combination with skin oils, creating a greenish layer of copper carbonate on skin. This more often can occur with tight rings worn in hot weather, because of the lack of air circulation between your finger and the ring.
An easy fix is to coat only the inside of your piece with clear nail polish. This creates a barrier, preventing oxidation.
You can also minimize oxidation by taking jewelry off at night.
