Brass and silver oxidize naturally with time and with contact to the skin. This is a beautiful and natural look of the metals, but it's possible with a bit of cleaning once in a while to maintain the new, shining, bright look of the metal. Use a bit of lemon or vinegar to soak the jewel, and a soft cloth to rub the jewel until it shines again.
Brass has been used all over Asia for more then 2000 years. The brass our partner uses is imported from Italy and is of the highest of quality. Not coated with lacquer as high quality brass tends to produce its own protective coating (patina) over time.
Produced in remote areas of Indonesia and Thailand where local expertise still fuels traditional techniques of hand carving jewelry. After years of research our supplier has now created our own factories where highly skilled and experienced locals are doing what they do best; hand carving with great care and finesse
Our partner has succeeded in creating a unique local Eco-awareness and assisted in development of their local economy. A major part of our sales flows back into the local communities where there factories are located. They are involved in important social development projects.
