All metals are nickel free and made in the USA. We use recycled or reclaimed materials whenever possible. The hardwoods we use are scraps that are collected from local wood shops. Due to the handmade nature of the work, slight variations in texture, size, and details may occur. The pieces pictured are samples and are not the exact ones you will receive, but rest assured they will be just as beautiful!
We hand-fabricate all pieces using brass, sterling silver, and 14k goldfill. All ear wires are sterling silver or 14k goldfill and are safe for sensitive ears. Our jewelry is never plated, as plating can wear off or crack over time. 14k goldfill items have a thicker layer of gold than typical plating and should maintain their appearance for years to come.
Brass and silver items develop a natural patina over time, which we believe adds character and beauty to the jewelry. If you prefer to restore the shine on your piece, you can clean your jewelry with a polishing cloth (we use Sunshine Polishing cloths). Please note that etched and oxidized pieces may lose their finish if polished aggressively. To delay oxidation, keep your Carolyn Keys jewelry away from moisture, lotions and other beauty products. When you’re not wearing your jewelry it is best to store it in a plastic bag.
