Care and repair etc.
 Each of my pieces are crafted by hand from raw materials.    I try to avoid harsh chemicals and protecting agents, as they are not necessary, can affect the integrity of the metal and sometimes create sensitivity for the wearer.   all jewelry naturally accumulates a sense of wear and a change in color over time, dependent on body chemistry, daily care and exposure to natural elements.   Salt water, chlorine, soaps, lotions, body oils and perspiration all take their toll on fine jewelry.      Humidity, hair spray, and perfume are your jewelry’s enemies, so spray first, accessorize second, and keep your jewels out of the bathroom, shower, kitchen sink, hot tub, ocean water, etc.   Frequent cleaning with soap and water is recommended to maintain the true beauty of each piece.   Polish your jewelry often and keep it clean and free of these elements which oxidize.   store in a dry place -a jewelry box or cloth bag is best- to avoid scratches and regular air oxidation.    

Pieces with patina are coated with a light, natural wax to add protection, but all patinas will wear naturally over time.     Never scrub patinas with harsh materials or chemicals, as this will remove the color.     Re-application of patina is available on your piece at any time for a small fee.     Proper care and preservation will keep your piece feeling loved and keep you in love with wearing it

Lastly, well-loved pieces can sometimes break, but in the unlikely event this occurs, I am always happy to fix them. For any repairs please contact me directly at lucy@votivedesigns.com.  A small fee for shipping and handling as well as possible materials cost will be determined.  for missing earring matches, replacement cost will be cost of single earring, or 50% of full retail price PLUS SHIPPING COSTS BOTH WAYS.
