The below provides answers to frequently asked questions, but if you need additional help, please contact me and I will respond shortly.
What are your flowers made of? TOP
I create all of my flowers with a polymer clay which is a waterproof, durable material. For multi-colored flowers, I hand blend them with assorted clay colors, some which I custom blend. No paints or moulds are used in the process. I provide a variety of styles and components to choose from. If you do not see it listed, I will gladly work with you to customize an item.
Do you sell your flowers as beads? TOP
No. I only sell my flowers as finished products incorporated into my original jewelry designs and do not sell them separately as beads.
What components do you use? TOP
I use a wide range of components in order to offer my customers options to fit their needs. Here is a list of my commonly used components and their descriptions:
My Common Components
Stud Earrings - Surgical steel posts, nickel-free
Clip ons - Base metal silver tone
Drop Earrings - sterling silver, gold-filled and antique brass (all lead and nickel safe)
Leverback Earrings - antique brass, silver plated and gold plated (all lead and nickel safe)
Necklaces are available in a variety of choices including antique brass, sterling silver, gold filed, silver plated and gold plated.
Gold Plated is a base metal (usually brass or steel) and is electroplated with gold. It is a thinner layer of gold and will wear more easily than gold filled. Very commonly used for a costume jewelry category.
Gold Filled is a base metal with a thicker coat of gold (at least 5%) and does not wear as easily as gold plated.
Silver Plated is a thin layer of silver that is coated over a base metal. Very commonly used for a custom jewelry category.
Sterling Silver contains 92.5% of pure silver and although will tarnish, can be polished back to it's shine. This metal is a popular choice for those with metal allergies.
Antique Brass is a brass base with an aging process applied. Most antique brass style components in my shop are either a brass, iron or steel base.
Silver Plated Brass is a copper base plated with sterling silver with an enamel coating applied making it tarnish-resistant.
Gold Tone Brass is a copper base with a gold tone and enamel coating applied making it tarnish-resistant.
