The materials I work with have an organic style due to the surface patterns and treatments I chose for each individual piece. My work is created in sterling & fine silver and gold.
The work I create in silver is patinated or oxidized to reveal the textures and patterns. These pieces can be easily cleaned with the wipe of a jewelry cloth or 0000 steel wool, soft toothbrush and soap and water. Please do not use paste cleaners or commercial silver cleaner as this will remove the oxidization. If you wear these pieces daily, as in a cuff that remains on your wrist the metal will become smooth with wear over time. This is the kind of character that shows the material is not only rugged but sturdy enough for daily wear and creates a lovely patina of and smoothness reminiscent of a comfortable pair of cowboy boots. Yes I do love a good pair of vintage cowboy boots! Baking soda mixed with a bit of water and a toothbrush will keep your pieces looking bright and new, but please not on gemstone pieces!
Leather in the wrap bracelets and necklaces can be replaced once worn out. Please return the entire piece to me with a $5 bill, I will restring and ship first class your refurbished piece to you within 1 week.
If you would like me to be re-patinated any silver piece I am happy to do so, please include $5 for first class shipping. It is my pleasure to revisit a creation!
Feel free to contact me with any questions with regard to the use and care of any of my creations.
