How do I take care of my jewelry?
All my ear wires are formed from sterling silver wire that is softer than base metals. For fishhook style ear wires, please twist (like a screw) rather than push the ear nuts / backs to remove and put on. This will prevent accidentally bending the silver ear wire. The earring back will loosen over time.
Sterling silver tarnishes. The best defense is to wear your jewelry often! However, if you want to polish it, you can use a bit of cream silver polish then dry carefully with a soft towel. You can use cream copper polish on my copper items.
Please see my resource page on pearl care for tips on caring for your pearl jewelry.
How are your ear wires sized?
I make my ear wires in the following sizes:
- French hook / Fishhook style - 21-gauge wire
- Kidney wire / Locking wire - 22-gauge wire (this is a thin wire that makes these earrings very comfortable to wear)
- Post / Stud - 20 gauge
I'm happy to make a pair of earrings for you with a different thickness of wire. Just contact me!
Can I get a ring resized?
I do not resize my one-of-a-kind rings. However, I'd be happy to make you a custom ring in your size. Just contact me! If you don't know your ring size, check out my handy tip on how to easily determine your ring size.
