Frequently asked questions
What are some characteristics of fused glass?
Each glass piece is handmade and fused in a kiln in our studio. The kiln heats up to around 1,500 degrees. Each process takes around 24 hours. Some bubbles are normal in glass, especially if including leaves or silver. It shows that your art is handmade.
Can I put my glass in the dishwasher?
Everyone asks! We recommend washing your new glass by hand. It will get etched in the dishwasher. For decorative pieces, isopropyl alcohol is a good glass cleaner. Spartan glass cleaner is an excellent glass cleaner.
Do pendants come with chains?
Yes! We include a 24" silver-plated chain with each pendant. Please store your new necklace with the anti-tarnish squares. The necklaces can generally be put on or removed by lifting it over your head without unclasping it.
How is your silver and bronze jewelry made?
Our silver and bronze jewelry pieces are made of precious metal clay (PMC). Metal clay techniques originated in Japan. The metal is mixed with binders and can be shaped into pieces then heated in a kiln or with a torch. The binder burns off, leaving behind the metal. Silver PMC is 99.9% pure.
