Behind the Scenes
Speaking of metal...There are so many different kinds. Sterling Silver, Raw Copper, Jeweler's Brass--the list goes on and on! I've shared some different basic cleaning methods, but here you'll find out how to use those handy household items that you most likely have just "laying around".
(If your ketchup is laying around, that's a freeloader. Put it to work on a french fry.)
Caring for Your Jewelry
Let's get metal!
Heavy metal isn't just for 80s cover bands and guys with dad bods (both are equally endearing).
Sterling silver, raw copper, jeweler's brass, gold-filled wire... These are all types of metal that I work with to create beautiful earrings, magical pendants, and pretty little adorned hairpins. You fell in love and bought a piece or two (or five? Keep it up and I could quit my day job!). Thank you for supporting my dreams!
Now that you have this gorgeous jewelry creation, you have questions:"How do I clean it?""How do I keep it looking this amazing into my later years?""What happens if I eat lead paint?"
I got you.
Read my blog and find the answers you seek.
Well, all except the lead paint thing. You should really go to the ER for that.
How It All Works...I design it, craft it, inventory it, market it, sell it, and then do it all over again. There is so much that goes into jewelry creation beyond just clipping some wire or attaching an ear hook. I thought I would share some of the process with you in the hopes it may shed some light on why this is something I'm passionate about.
