Caring for your newly custom made product is simple. Here are a few tips to help with the care of your item(s).
Most of the items within shop that are oxidized have been chemically blackened, chemically patinated, or oxidized using a torch or chemicals. Then sealed with a protective coating. Like all oxidized metals that are sealed, they are not meant to be worn in water for extended periods of time or exposed to harsh chemicals such as shampoos, soaps etc. To do this would essentially be compromising the sealer and washing them clean. As stated earlier, it is an oxidation (think soot) process. Not painted or enameled--so it needs to avoid all harsh cleansing processes.
Be advised that over an extended period of time, your patina or heat treated item may fade as a natural process. Items that are worn daily may experience this process quicker than others. Copper and brass tend to darken/patina naturally overtime which is preferred by some.
If you would like to gently clean an item such as a ring that has an oxidation/patina, a suggestion may be to use a cotton ball and a light astringent such as witch hazel and gently wipe the surface. Avoid abrasive scrubbing and rubbing of the surface, Submerging in any fluids is not recommended.
If you have purchased a product that has not been color treated, you may clean them as you would any other piece of jewelry. You may dip them in a pre-made solution, or you can make your own. To make your own pickling solution, you can mix vinegar, salt and sometimes lemon juice together. Simply heat and then dip the metal into warm/heated solution, then remove and wipe down. Polish to shine.
The jewelry from this shop is made by hand, and will have somewhat different character marks and distinctions that are unique to each owner. Your purchase may have slight differences from the photos such as, tone variation, highlight variations, indentations etc. Feel free to contact this shop if you have questions.
