Jewelry Care & Ear Wire Material
Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc and will naturally tarnish when exposed to oxygen. Some people like the patina of tarnished brass and the tarnish is actually a protective layer for the brass, but if you want to get the shine of the new brass it's pretty easy to do by using one of our brass polishing bars.
Every piece of Fabulina Designs jewelry is hand-crafted by us in Atlanta, Georgia often with rare and unique natural beads, brass metal, gold plated components, all of which requires delicate handling.
After each wear, gently wipe with a soft jewelry cloth and store in a jewelry box your fabulous piece arrived in.
Avoid moisture and keep away from water, should your item get wet, make sure to dry it off. Certain metals and plating (specifically gold-plated) can tarnish over time when exposed to chemicals such as pool and sea water, hair spray, perfume and lotions. It's recommended to put your jewelry on last to minimize the contact with these chemicals. Oils from your skin and the oxygen in the air are what accelerate tarnishing.
