CARE: Brass oxidises naturally, giving it an aged look over time. You can clean and polish it with common household products like lemon juice, ketchup, or toothpaste. However, use care when cleaning the brass or metal components of your jewellery to avoid letting the cleaning agent come into contact with the fibers.
NOTE | each piece is individually handmade and may vary slightly from the images shown. please allow for subtle variations of vintage materials, as well as oxidisation of brass.
