We cast all of our pieces in reclaimed brass or bronze that is free from nickel. 

Please be aware that all brass and bronze will tarnish from environmental exposure and human touch. 

We treat our brass and bronze with a natural wax that we have added gold powder. this wax and finish slows down the tarnish. To help maintain your brass keep the jewelry dry and don't wear swimming, though Nettie wears her's in the ocean and loves the rich patina that the metals develop!
