What are the characteristics of handmade jewellery?
All of my pieces are handmade so please expect some small flaws, irregular shapes, visible paint strokes and so on.
I believe that this adds character to each and every pair of earrings!
What material are your posts/hooks/hoops?
All my pairs are surgical stainless steel so that does make them hypoallergenic. I do always recommend taking care if you have sensitive ears however these should be perfect for you!
How should I care for my earrings?
In order to care for your pieces it is advised that you don't wear them in the shower or wet weather. Keep out of direct sunlight when storing your designs and handle them with care. Keep them away from sharp objects that could dig into the surface and scratch them. To clean your piece please use a slightly damp cloth on painted wooden areas and pat them dry. Try not to wipe acrylic with paint filled areas.
Are the pieces sealed?
I do seal all my painted pieces either with a spray on clear coat or resin. I still advise you to take care especially when cleaning them. I still suggest that you don't get your pairs wet or damp.
Why do the colours look slightly different in real life?
There may be some slight variations between different computer/phone screens. I do try to show the colours of each item as accurately as possible.
Do you take custom orders?
Unfortunately I cannot take on any custom orders at the moment! Fingers crossed that I can again in the future.
Do you accept wholesale orders?
Whilst I absolutely loved being able to offer wholesale orders in the past, I do not have the capacity to take them on currently!
