FAQs

What are your products made of?

My products are made from a variety of materials, but the main material is wood. I use mainly recycled Rimu, which is a beautiful NZ native wood, renowned for its beautiful reddy colour. It is very strong and durable. Rimu is mounted onto MDF which gives it a beautiful solid base. Metals vary, but I use mainly bronze and brass. In 2017 - all my stud earrings will be changed to sterling silver.

How do I care for my product?

My products are made to be worn every day, and are durable. Keep your items as dry as possible, preferably in your bedroom (not bathroom) when not wearing them. Please don't swim, bath or shower with your jewellery.

Brass and Bronze - To keep your metal looking shiny and new simply take a tiny dab of tomato sauce (yes you heard right) on an ear bud and rub it onto the metal. Leave it for 5 mins, then rub off and shine using the clean end of the bud.

Do you have any guarantees?

If you are not happy with a product, I will replace the item immediately, or I will give you a credit to use on the website to equal value. Unfortunately I cannot offer replacements for products which were bought more than 3 months ago, have suffered normal wear or tear, or have been water damaged (water damage is usually seen when the product peels, lifts or expands.
