Our jewellery may look simple, but it can take weeks (often months) to develop a new design.  Once a design is ready to make the transition from paper to metal, we fabricate a prototype using traditional silversmithing techniques.  A mold is then made from the prototype, and the pieces are cast in sterling silver.  There's a surprising amount of work involved in cleaning up and finishing the castings, and we do all of that in our workshop.  As you can imagine, working on such a small scale can be challenging.
Our pieces are made to last, however, sterling silver is subject to tarnish and may require a bit of cleaning from time to time. Exposure to oxygen is what causes the tarnish, so it helps to keep your jewellery in a ziplock bag when you aren't wearing it.

      Use a paste of baking soda and water to remove tarnish.  Be sure to rinse the piece well, and dry thoroughly with a soft cloth or paper towel.    A silver polishing cloth is also a great option for cleaning silver, and will give a bit more of a shine.

      For a deeper cleaning:
          Place a piece of aluminum foil the bottom of a bowl.  Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 cup of boiling water and stir gently until the salt dissolves.  Drop your silver jewellery onto the foil and let it sit for 1-3 minutes.  A chemical reaction will draw the tarnish from the silver to the foil.  Remove the pendant from the bowl, and rinse well and dry.  You can then burnish your piece with a paste of baking soda and water.
