Shell and stones are like glass, if they fall they might break. It is the customer's responsibility to make sure they are handled with care.
All pieces are made by hand using hand cut/ textured brass. Slight inconsistencies, imperfections and the natural beauty of brass are what make my pieces unique.
I treat the brass with Renaissance Micro - Crystalline wax polish to prevent tarnishing.
Nevertheless Brass will patina with age. To take the best care of your jewelry, do not place it in a closed and humid area and leave it outside of any jewelry boxes.
Additionally, you may clean your piece periodically with baking soda and lemon juice and a polish cloth if needed.
Please avoid applying lotions or sprays prior to putting on your piece, as it can discolor the metal.
