To avoid tarnishing, polish your jewellery with a polishing cloth or pad. Due to the natural oils in your skin preventing tarnishing, wearing your jewellery regularly is a great way to keep your jewellery fresh. We recommend you store your jewellery individually packaged in a cool, dry place keeping pieces separate to avoid scratching. Avoid contact with household chemicals, hair products + lotions etc. Remove your jewellery when cleaning, swimming + sunbathing.
If you are interested in commissioning a piece of jewellery, please get in touch with Charlie directly.

If you want design sketches of a potential piece, a £30 deposit will be required, non refundable if you decide not to get the piece made.
