Almost everything we make is sterling silver, or 23kt gold over sterling. Chains and earwires are either sterling silver or 14kt gold-fill. The black charms and findings are sterling silver oxidized to a heavy black, then covered in a protective wax. Lockets, dogtags and selected small charms are plated brass. If you have a specific question on materials, please contact us.
Please note that our black items are a patina, not a paint. It will wear over time, creating a special high-low finish unique to you and your wear patterns.
For customers with metal allergies: like all plated items, our gold charms have a small amount of nickel under the 23kt gold covering.
Our leather comes from a California company founded in the 1800s to service the Gold Rush. When the industrial leather tanning processes moved overseas in the 1980s, the company persevered by sourcing hides and having them custom tanned all over the world for specialty manufacturers such as us. Most of the hides we use were originally sourced from the American food chain.
We make everything in our studio, so many things are possible. Longer necklaces, special color combinations, matching earrings, reach out and ask. Note that we do not work in precious metals or gems, nor do we copy the work of other artists or manufacturers.
