JEWELRY CARE + INFO

Metal Care:

Brass is a metal alloy of copper and zinc that naturally tarnishes over time. Unlike sterling silver, the patina process for brass is enjoyed by many. Each piece will gain it's own unique, rich, worn-in tone over time. I personally think this change is extremely beautiful and a fun process to witness!

If you prefer to keep your metal pieces looking super shiny, simply store in a small plastic zip bag when not wearing to help prevent tarnishing. You can also purchase a silver polishing cloth (NOT a liquid cleaner) and that should get your piece back to shiny gold in no time! My favorite is the little yellow Sunshine Cloth that was introduced to me at the bead store I worked at back in the day. Recommend 10/10.

I suggest you avoid getting your metal pieces wet - do not wear in the shower or while working out.

I strive to represent the colors of each piece accurately; however each computer screen or iPhone screen may distort the color slightly & Melissa Jenkins Designs is not responsible for said differences.

FIBER GOODS CARE + INFO

Wall Decor/Weavings

Woven wall decor piece are very easy to maintain. They may collect a bit of dust after awhile, but simply take outside and shake or tap them very lightly on the back with your hand (similar to how woven rugs have dust removed).

Most woven pieces are created with cotton and wool, though some of my vintage/thrifted yarns are synthetic blends. I also work with wool roving and brass in my pieces. 

Fiber Jewelry

All woven pieces are secure for everyday wear. 

I suggest you avoid getting any woven piece wet, but especially your fiber jewelry - do not wear in the shower or while working out.

- Woven necklaces and pins are backed in hand-stitched felt. 

- If you tassel earrings get un-ruly, simply brush out with your fingers, spritz with a bit of water, and lay flat or hang to dry. Within the hour, they'll be ready for your next adventure.

Variations:

All pieces are handmade and one-of-a-kind. Variations will be limited, but no two woven pieces can ever be exactly the same. I find this to be quite lovely!
