My silver has tarnished, what can I do?
Sterling silver will naturally oxidize when exposed to air. Simply use a polishing cloth to remove the black and store in a dry place.
Buying jewelry with set stones, what to do.
When purchasing jewelry with stones, care must be taken to prolong the life of your jewels. Please avoid wearing jewelry in water(hot tubs, shower, oceans, etc.), during physical activities where it may get caught and snagged or anywhere they may be exposed to chemicals. Soft materials such as Lapis, Turquoise and other such gems are more susceptible to changes due to exposure to moisture, chemicals and lotions and atmosphere.
Where do you get the gems in your work from?
The stones we select at WM are sourced from family operated businesses who take care to obtain stones with minimal damage to the environment. No heavy equipment is used to extract these lovely gems. They then go on to be hand-cut and polished. A whole lot of love goes into the stones. That means I may pay a little more per stone but, every one is special and you can take pride in knowing you are supporting small businesses while caring about the environment.
How do you ship your parcels?
We ship via Canada Post every week for pre-made pieces. Made to order items are shipped upon completion which may take 3-4 weeks, sooner if completed earlier. All items are packaged in a recycled gift box tied with hemp string. We use repurposed boxes/materials to pack in whenever possible and are transitioning to recycled/repurposed materials for every parcel. Any additional packaging and/or accoutrements are thrifted, reused and recyclable. I want your experience to be enjoyable when you open your packet so please, let me know of any concerns as soon as it arrives.
