I really love bronze! It's an alloy made of copper and tin, has a beautiful warm golden tone, and is an affordable alternative to 10 or 14k gold. Solid bronze is durable, easy to clean, and will last for decades.
CosmicDeva Silver Jewelry is designed and handcrafted of .999 Fine Silver and .925 and .960 Sterling Silver using environment friendly recycled silver.
Copper was used by even the oldest civilizations on record, dating back over 10,000 years. In the earliest cases, the copper items were mined and pounded, hand-worked into shape; by 500BCE there is evidence of smelting.
I am committed to environmentally-conscious atelier practices, such as recycled metals and using less-toxic chemical alternatives for my metal-smithing work.
Jewelry has to be handled with care and is not indestructible. It should be taken off during heavy physical work, showering, dish washing and swimming. Exposure to chemicals (e.g. chlorine, soap, skincare products) should be avoided. Metal and gemstones can also change color due to skin contact, chemicals and cosmetics. This is a normal process and no flaw or reason for a refund.
My handcrafted jewelry does not have the same look as machine made jewelry. Small imperfections and slight differences from the pictures may occur. It is the character of handmade and not a fault or a reason for a refund. Any surface finish on metals has a tendency to wear off. Especially very dark oxidations on smooth surfaces will wear off faster.
