Copper is a metal that darkens with time as it reacts with your body such as oils,
and also with the air. Raw copper will leave a dark or green mark on most
people's skin. My copper pieces are treated with a sealant to make
shine and patina last longer and to prevent marks. This sealant will wear off with
time though, mostly on rings because they get a lot more wear and tear than
other jewelry. If this happens you can use clear nail polish on the inside of the
ring, or contact me and I can seal it again for you. This service is free of charge
(shipping not included).

sealed and water proof.
The clay jewelry might attract dust. You can keep it in a zip bag or box when not
Some crystals and the space jewelry might get their colours faded in sunlight, if
they get exposed to sun for a longer time. Keep your jewelry in a place where the
sun can't reach it when you are not wearing it.
Dropping the jewelry:
Most crystals can crack if they are dropped on hard surfaces, that includes the
clay and also the space jewelry because of the glass cabochon.
