How I care my jewelry pieces?

We try to create high-quality pieces that will last for generations. Proper care will ensure the longevity of your pieces. 
Be kind to your jewelry. Remove jewelry when using chemicals, doing heavy exercise or dirty work. please keep your jewelry away from perfume, hairspray or other chemicals.
Many of our pieces feature oxidized silver. This is a natural and changeable process. The oxidation may fade or change over time, depending on your body chemistry, causing shinier silver to show through. 
If necessary, use a soft toothbrush with warm, soapy water to clean your metal pieces. Avoid soap if your piece has opals. 
Store your jewelry in a dry place.
Storing in the bathroom will expose the metal to quicker, uneven oxidation and may damage some stones.

Uneven surfaces and imperfections in seashells or stones?

We love the perfection of an imperfect stone or seashell itself, we believe it give our pieces uniqueness and mostly it is our moto to create and design new pieces. We like the traces the elements leave in nature, we like the textures and we love inclusions in semiprecious stones.Remember the Nature is the main artist here :)
