FAQs

How do I care for my handmade jewelry? 

Caring for your handmade jewelry is as easy as caring for any other fine jewelry. All of my copper creations, and some of my sterling silver, have an added patina which gives the pieces a vintage feel. An occasional wipe with a dry jewelry cloth, available in most big box stores, is all that’s needed to keep your jewelry looking it’s best. Do not use any strong cleaning or polishing solutions because these could damage this special finish. Remove jewelry before bathing or swimming and avoid chemicals. Caring for your jewelry properly will help it last for a lifetime of wear.

Do you have gift wrapping?

2013-07-31_00001All items are sealed in a poly-zip bag with a “handcrafted jewelry care card”, placed in a recycled brown kraft box, and tied with a ribbon. For gifts you want mailed directly to the recipient, I would be happy to enclose a small gift card with a message from you. Just tell me this in the note to seller when you checkout, and what you’d like the note to say. This is included free of charge as my way of thanking you for choosing handmade.

How do I figure out my bracelet size?

1.  Measure your wrist just below the wrist bone with a flexible measuring tape. Tip:  if you don’t have a flexible measuring tape you can use a strip of paper or thin string – just mark it where it overlaps on your wrist with a marker and then lay it flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler. This number will be your wrist size.
2.  Add 1/4″ to 1″ (average is 1/2″) to your wrist size, depending on your whether you like your bracelets to have a snug fit or hang more loosely. This will give you your ideal bracelet size.
