Handmade Jewelry - Each piece is crafted by various artisans with an array of raw materials and metals, solid raw brass or silver plated brass including plated and oxidized brass and white metal, surgical steel, semiprecious stones, vintage glass beads, Indian handmade glass beads, acrylic, resin, polymer clay, raw crystals and minerals.

Alternative Metal Jewelry - Titanium, tungsten carbide and stainless steel jewelry are the three most prominent types of alternative metal jewelry. These kinds of jewelry have been considered to be alternatives to gold, silver and platinum. Alternative metal jewelry is far more affordable, durable and hypoallergenic compared to precious metals.  Alternative metal jewelry can also be crafted to emulate precious metals like rose or yellow gold jewelry using Ion Plating.

The benefits of Ion Plating - The idea is to ensure that jewelry can stand the test of time, you will be getting a high quality item that lasts longer, while also maintaining a lightweight and elegant look.

 

Less maintenance is needed 

This type of plating allows for an easier cleaning process and it will take much longer for it to start losing its shine. Just some water and regular soap are going to be all you need in order to restore that initial look. There is no need to worry about the effects of water or any kind of conditions that might damage other types of plating. This is the best and most reliable option when you don’t want to be worrying about damaging your jewelry.

 

Hypoallergenic 

Some people seem to have allergic reactions to certain types of jewelry plating, and Ion Plating is also an excellent option because it’s hypoallergenic. This is definitely an excellent choice for anyone who has sensitive skin.

Other Materials - high quality materials such as carbon fiber, enamel, rubber, and Morano glass.

 

​How To Care For Your Earrings?

WHAT IS ALCHEMY SPRAY?

Alchemy Spray is comprised of water and a proprietary polymer. The polymer is what adheres to your jewelry and protects it from tarnishing. It also creates a barrier that keeps your skin from coming in to contact with the metal thus keeping your skin from being irritated if you are sensitive or if your skin turns colors from jewelry.

Q: How often do I spray it?

A: Once a month is recommended for pieces that you wear a lot. Just hold the bottle about 6-8 inches away from the jewelry and give it a nice coating. If you sweat a lot or wash your hands a lot (and don't take your jewelry off), you might want to spray again after 2 weeks. It's also a good idea to treat several pieces at once because the Alchemy's spray pattern is generous and this way you don't waste product. Put down a paper towel, fill it with jewels and spray away!

Q: Is there a smell?

A: Nope. When Alchemy dries, you can't see it, feel it or smell it.

Q: Does it really work?

A: YES it works!

Q: What can I spray Alchemy on?

A: Lots of stuff! I get a lot of customer feedback about earrings. You don't have to be sensitive to metal for earrings to make you itch, or cause knots or get scabby. I have customers who haven't been able to wear earrings in years and this has opened up the door for them! So spray it on earrings, rings, bracelets, necklaces, eyeglasses, buttons on clothes, belt buckles, etc. Just don't use Alchemy on any piercings that touch a mucus membrane (i.e. no lip or nose rings).

Q: Can I spray Alchemy on my real jewelry and gemstones?

A: Yes. Alchemy dries clear and will not disrupt the integrity of your jewelry. It is recommended for costume (cheap jewelry as well as sterling silver) and fine jewelry. In fact, customers have reported that if they spray Alchemy on their fine jewelry after it has been cleaned, they don't have to clean it as much. 

Q: Can I swim with my jewelry on if I use Alchemy?

A:  Jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off everyday. You should avoid showering, swimming, cleaning, etc while wearing your jewelry. Beauty products (body wash, soap, perfume, lotion), chlorine, and cleaning products can compromise your jewelry. Alchemy helps protect your jewelry but it is water based to be sensitive on your skin. Perfume, soaps, cleaning products can break down the formula faster where you have to apply more often.
