Material Descriptions

Not all metals are the same. And Tibetan Silver is actually not silver at all.
 will be adding more information here over time

Materials - What is what

A lot of modern jewellery will be labelled as Tibetan Silver, alluding to it being real silver , made in Tibet. But these do not actually contain any real silver in them at all, but rather high copper and sometimes other dangerous materials. It iwll tarnish extremely quickly, and sometimes also develop that green residue on your skin.

As such, their pricing will actually be relatively cheap compared to real 925 silver.

Here you can place an explanation or answer to theThis can be a combination of any metals, and is typically your cheapest option.

Because the composition is typically unknown, people with sensitivities can have allergic reactions.

The finish may tarnish more easily, or leave black colouring on your skin more readily. question.

Stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant alloy of iron. It is extremely hard, making it less prone to damage from scratches, is great for many people who have allergies to materials contained in general metal alloys, or copper in sterling silver.

It doesn't tarnish like other metals, retaining it's sheen.

925 Sterling silver is an alloyed formed of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper.

The copper gives it more strength, however it is also what makes it tarnish, and need polishing.

Some 925 silvers will come electrocoated, or rhodium plated to reduce tarnishing, but with wear and tear, even these will become susceptible and need polishing.

Pure silver will not tarnish like 925, however it is also extremely malleable and thus rarely used for jewellery unless in wire form.

Gold is a soft metal. and can be combined with copper to create rose gold, or silver and palladium to create white gold.

Pure Gold (24 carat) is rarely used as it is extremely "soft". Beacuse of this you will often see k, 10k, 14k, 18k, 24k labelled gold.

9k being the hardest, and the lowest of pure gold in it. In turn, this makes it more affordable.

Typical to common belief, Gold will tarnish also, but not to the degree of silver.

I use freshwater pearls, in natural or dyed colours.

Different leathers are used in my creations including cow , kangaroo, pig, deer, and others.

Epoxy jewellery resins are durable, usually clear or translucent, man made material, used to set hair and other materials in a mould.

Although resin is hardy and durable, it still needs looking after.


Resin does have a limited life, and will change colour and break down over time.

When not being worn, it should always be stored away in a cool , dark, non air tight place.


This can /will happen when the resin jewellery is exposed to sunlight or to extreme heat alone, and cause the resin to break down and become discoloured. 


It’s important to store your resin jewellery properly when you’re not wearing it. Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and humidity. Avoid storing it in a damp or humid environment, as this can cause the resin to warp or discolour.


Avoid exposing it to harsh chemicals, such as cleaning products, hairspray, perfume and hand sanitisers. These can damage the resin & cause it to discolour or become cloudy. Also avoid exposing your resin jewellery to extreme temperatures or pressure, as this can cause it to crack or warp. When not wearing your resin jewellery, store it properly to help prolong its lifespan.

Avoiding Damage

You should avoid wearing your resin jewellery while swimming or showering, as exposure to water can damage the resin. You should also avoid exposing your resin jewellery to extreme temperatures, such as leaving it in a hot car or exposing it to direct sunlight for long periods of time. Handle your resin jewellery with care to avoid dropping or scratching it.


- Applying perfume or lotion

Store your resin pieces away from heat and sunlight! Avoid leaving in the sun, as UV rays can discolour and turn your resin yellow,. This cannot be reversed.

There are very few metals that will not tarnish. Even gold, when not i it's most purest form, will tarnish.

If you are after something that will withstand the time of discolouring, then Stainless Steel is your best option, or solid gold.
