Every piece of the design was hand drawn and then cut out by hand with a jewelers saw from a sheet of Sterling silver, which was then soldered together, sanded, patinated and then polished to a matte finish.
All photos have been taken during natural light.

Sterling and Fine silver.
-Keep away from harsh chemicals (such as perfumes, sprays and other cosmetics), as this can affect the metal, patina and stones.
-Avoid long term exposure to direct sunlight, as this can affect the stones colour.
-Refrain from showering, swimming, hand washing with jewelry. Store in a dry area, preferably in an airtight bag, as most cardboard jewelry boxes contain sulfur, which can tarnish the metal.
-Each order includes a polishing pad. When polishing, do not polish on blackened areas as this will remove the patina.
