becca compton jewels

about

each piece of jewelry is thoughtfully and entirely handcrafted. I design minimal heirloom pieces that transcend trends and highlight the materials used. I hope my creations will work into daily rituals, be used regularly, and loved for a long time.

15% of online and in person sales go to organizations that I believe in and want to support. currently, proceeds go to FREEDOM FOR IMMIGRANTS. this organization is working to end detention centers and jails.

 

jewelry care

the best way to care for your jewelry is to keep it in a clean/dry place. over time your brass, bronze, and silver jewelry will tarnish. jewels can be polished with a household silver polish or a polishing cloth. for stubborn patina not easily removed with a polishing cloth, feel free to contact me for tips or request a clean up of your jewelry.

oxidized pieces are coated with wax to help prevent the patina from fading, but please expect that it can wear off with constant contact and time. do not rub oxidized jewelry with a jewelry cleaning cloth, because it will remove the oxidation.

I will gladly refresh your jewels at no charge to you except the cost of shipping. I will clean up and restore oxidized elements.

use polishing clothes sparingly with gold fill, as they contain abrasives that could wear away the gold layers.

turquoise is a naturally porous stone so the color may deepen from exposure to body oils or chemicals. make sure to remove any turquoise jewelry when bathing or moisturizing.

with proper care, your jewelry should last for many years, but there are limits to its durability. if you require a repair, please contact me with a description/photo of what happened and I will happily fix up what went wrong. repair fees may apply.
