It is in the nature of silver and brass to tarnish over time. While it can be restored, we encourage you to embrace the evolving finish of the metal. If you prefer, you can use Bon Ami Cleaning Powder, or a polishing cloth to restore the original finish of your item.
To use Bon Ami Cleaning Powder: Create a paste with the powder and water. Gently rub the surface of the metal with your fingers. Rinse clean, and dry thoroughly. Please note that oxidized/black metal will lose its finish if scrubbed, or polished.
To avoid dramatic oxidation, remove your jewelry before showering, swimming, or using sprays of any kind. When you're not wearing your jewelry, we recommend storing it in a sealed plastic bag in a dry environment. Natalie Joy pieces are handmade. Although we put a lot of emphasis on the craft and quality of our product, each piece should be handled and stored with care to ensure it's longevity.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Designer Natalie Joy Miller developed the Natalie Joy jewelry line in the winter of 2010 inside of a walk-in closet in Portland, Oregon. After studying and creating small-scale sculptures at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, she spent five years as a manager at a large scale jewelry production company hand making and distributing jewelry to hundreds of boutiques across the country. After fine-tuning her technical and business skills, the desire to create a jewelry line of her own came naturally.
“For as long as I can remember I have been a tangible person with a strong desire to create objects with my hands. That urge has never left me; it just evolved through different mediums and outlets. Eventually, I found a way to satisfy my desire to make sculpture in a purely wearable format.”
Each piece of Natalie Joy jewelry is thoughtfully hand fabricated in our Portland studio using both unique and traditional metalworking techniques. This shows in the tiny details of the jewelry and how you feel while wearing Natalie Joy.
