Characteristics of my handmade jewellery

Please note that due to the handmade nature of my pieces, they may feature slight imperfections and inconsistencies. These in no way affect the functionality of the pieces – I believe they add to their character! I only list items I would be happy to wear myself. 


Please note that due to variations in some computer/phone screens and monitors, there may be slight variations in colour. Every attempt has been made to represent the product and colours as accurately as possible.

Care instructions

Most polymer clay pieces, especially the longer/thinner components, are  fragile – please do not bend or drop them! Please keep your pieces dry. All pieces can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or baby wipe.

Resin is durable like polymer clay, but can be damaged if dropped or knocked against a hard surface. To clean resin pieces, wipe down with a soft damp cloth. To maximise the life of the resin and colour do not store in direct sunlight or at high temperatures. If exposed to heat and sunlight slight discolouration may occur. Pigments may also fade over time. Avoid exposure to alcohols, in particular perfumes. They can react to the resin and affect the finish.

Brass Components

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. Tarnishing is actually a protective layer for the brass, but if you want to get the shine of the new brass it's pretty easy to do.

Polish using a jewellery polishing cloth. Or you can take it one step further, take about 2 tablespoons of baking soda and a few drops of lemon juice, mix until you have a nice paste. Take an old toothbrush and apply the paste to your piece and scrub. Let it sit in the paste for about 30 minutes and then rinse it with water and dry it thoroughly. 

Store earrings either in an airtight container or zip lock bag, this will help to avoid tarnishing over time. It's best not to let the brass touch any silver earrings you may have. 

Oils from your skin and the oxygen in the air are what accelerate tarnishing. If you want to slow the tarnish process, wipe the pieces with a soft cotton rag after wearing.
