To create our black pieces, we oxidize the silver/bronze/brass until it turns black. Oxidation is a process that happens to silver/bronze/brass naturally, we just speed up the process.
The black oxidation, is designed to fade over time to make your piece unique to you and your experiences. As you wear it, the black will fade to the natural color of the silver/bronze/brass. The finish can always be re finished, and we do offer this service. If you would ever like it re finished, just contact us for details.
Depending on how often you wear your piece, the black can wear off at different speeds. To keep your piece looking black longer we recommend you keep it dry and away from perfumes and lotions.
