Much of my jewelry is made from raw brass which I love for it's amazing golden luster. I seal each piece with a protective wax but brass is a reactive metal, and often changes color over time. I tend to think this adds an amazing rustic quality to the pieces, but if you would like to keep them gleaming, feel free to use any commercial brass cleaner (such as Brasso) or try this at home cleaning method:
Simple DIY for cleaning your brass jewelry:
Bon Ami powder mixed with a little dish soap makes a great cleaner! Just make a paste, scrub your piece of jewelry with an old toothbrush and voila! good as new.
I like to seal my pieces with Renaissance wax (but shoe polish works great too!) Just apply wax sparingly and then buff with a soft cloth to restore shine. Repeat this process as necessary to keep your jewelry fresh and clean!
*I highly recommend a SUNSHINE polishing cloth if you’d like to keep your pieces nice and shiny between cleanings.
***Do not expose your jewelry to continuous moisture or heat, as this can drastically change the finish on your pieces. A steamy bathroom is the worst place to leave your jewelry. To best preserve the finish on your brass jewelry, I recommend storing away from other jewelry in a cool, dry environment.
If your item is damaged when you receive it I will repair it at no additional cost. If your piece of jewelry breaks during everyday wear in the first 6 months I will also repair it for free. After 6 months, please contact me for a repair quote.
