Materials & Care
Brass is a metal alloy of copper and zinc. Known for its durability and workability, brass has been used for centuries — the first example of brass jewelry dates from ancient Rome. Aside from how good it looks, brass is sustainable. Today almost 90% of all brass in the world is recycled.
Store your earrings in a plastic bag or a glass jar away from air, natural sunlight and heat. Brass don't mix well with moisture. Avoid contact with water, lotion and perfume.
Since I don’t use plating over a base metal, the earrings are easy to clean, and you don’t need to worry about the color wearing off. Since brass is a natural alloy it will gradually patina over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. If you prefer a bright sheen, this effect can be removed with a quick polish. The earrings can be cleaned using ingredients you may already have at home, lemon juice, baking soda or vinegar. Rub onto surface with a cloth or toothbrush, then rinse off. You may also use the green side of a sponge with a little soap and just rub, it will shine !
