What do I need to know about handcrafted products?

Handcrafted products are truly unique and one-of-a-kind... just like you! What this means is you may see some variation in color or size in your item compared to what is shown on our website.

What happens if I buy an item labeled "Assorted?"

Some of our products are upcycled from saris or use materials that may vary. This is dependent on the supply available to our artisans at the time of creation. The item shown on our website will give you an idea of how the product looks and functions overall but it will have variation in the final color or patterns that are shown due to our reliance on available materials. Please also note that we are unable to accommodate color preferences to items, and/or exchange them. Think of it as a surprise that you're sure to love!

This ensures that the components are nickel, lead and cadmium-free.The color of the brass is achieved by electroplating a minuscule amount of silver or other materials onto a brass base.Other key materials can be found in the product description. Exceptions include the sterling silver jewelry collections, which are made with 925 sterling silver.
