Silver and brass will oxidize and patina with time. We believe this results in a natural beauty all their own, but if you prefer them as shiny as the first day, scroll below for more info and cleaning instructions from the artist.

Brass and Sterling Silver will react naturally when exposed to heat, oils and liquids. This is usually prevented in commercial jewelry making by treating the metal with harsh chemicals.
These pieces are not chemically treated. In their raw state they are less toxic, but they are vulnerable to tarnish.
Brass and silver can be cleaned sustainably by using a simple home remedy:
Heat enough apple cider vinegar to submerge the piece. Add a few generous dashes of salt.
Agitate the piece in the mixture for 5 minutes. Remove and clean the piece with soap and water.
Repeat if needed.
An abrasive sponge or old tooth-brush can be used to further shine things up.
