The Materials

BRASS

Recycled brass is the cornerstone of our jewelry collections. As a versatile binary alloy composed of copper and zinc, it is both a practical and precious metal and makes for an ethical alternative to gold.

All brass is free from lead and cadmium – we ensure complete contaminant removal occurs during the recycling and purification process.

GOLD

Gold jewelry components such as earring fastenings and necklace chains are made from 9ct gold and 14k gold fill.

Our gold-plated pieces are created by electroplating 24k gold onto brass at a thickness of 1 micron.

SILVER

Some pieces, such as earrings, are made with 925 sterling silver or have sterling silver fastenings. Others feature silver that is electroplated brass with an additional layer of chrome which gives them a high shine and a durable finish.

THE PROCESS

Brass is a metal that meets sustainability requirements, as the methods used to create and recycle it have a lower carbon footprint than even aluminum and steel. An alloy of copper and zinc, brass carries within it the basic properties of both of these metals, which explains its ease of "shaping" and its use in jewelry design. However, it is not created by combining the two metals, which would be both costly and environmentally harmful, but rather through recycling, as it can be melted down and reused over and over again. This process does not affect its valuable properties, making it a material that exemplifies the principles of the circular economy, an important consideration given the environmental crisis.

 

Before melting, pouring, and hammering the brass material by hand, our artisans source it ethically from various places, including waste facilities, focusing on recycled and reclaimed elements. As a result, each piece is traceable, from design to delivery.

Our jewelry is 100% handmade by talented artisans and built to last. With proper care, it should last you a lifetime.

Full disclosure: Although we strive towards zero waste in our manufacturing process, sometimes it is not entirely possible, as small, randomly-shaped pieces of brass may separate from the finished product during jewelry casting.

Product care

THE PRODUCT CARE

You may find that the shine on your jewelry fades a little over time; thisis perfectly normal, particularly for pieces worn on high-contact areas,such as rings and bracelets. However, you can maintain your jewelrybright and shiny for longer by following the care instructions below. 

Storage

We deliver all of our pieces in a gift-ready box and storage pouch. We recommend keeping your jewelry in the pouch the product arrives in toavoid oxidation from exposure to moisture and direct sunlight andprotect them from damage and dust while you’re not wearing them.Jewelry boxes are a great place to store jewelry, but that alone won’tprevent sterling silver pieces from tarnishing.  

Maintenance

You may want to wear your jewelry all the time, but giving them a breakduring the day will guarantee maximum shine over a more extendedperiod. Therefore, make it the last thing you put on while gettingdressed and the first thing you take off. Be very careful not to exposejewelry to makeup, perfume, oils, or hair products. If this isn’t possible,allow any self-care and beauty products to dry completely beforewearing them. Sweat has the same anti-shine effect, so make sure toremove any items before exercising. Also, avoid water. Never wear yourjewelry in the shower, in the swimming pool, sauna, or during anyactivity where it may get wet. And finally, keep your jewelry away fromany harsh chemicals such as household cleaning products, and don’twear them during activities where they could be hit or scratched. Don’tforget, delicate chains need extra care when storing, so they don’t breakor get twisted. Gently coil chains when storing and avoid yanking orpulling on them. 

How to Clean

To clean your jewelry:

1. Wipe each piece with the soft buffing cloth we provide.

2. Do not use any products that contain alcohol, as this can ruin thefinish, and avoid direct contact with water and chemical products,such as soap and detergents.

3. Take the time to lightly clean your jewelry after each wear toremove any makeup or skin oil residue.
