SUMMER 2020: PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE OKRA PROJECT/EMERGENCY RELEASE FUND

MATERIALS + CARE

CARE

  • each FYU piece is created by hand, and the use of vintage materials means handling with care.
  • please avoid exposure to harsh chemicals found in hot tubs, swimming pools, and cleaning products.
  • also avoid wearing pieces to the gym or when doing intense activity.
  • make sure your perfumes and makeup are fully dried prior to putting on your FYU pieces.
  • all pieces are sealed with Renaissance wax - included in your order. If you would like an extra coating on your pieces, please email fyudesigns[at]gmail.com with your order number.

 

MATERIALS

  • brass | much vintage material is made of this, and while unsealed, the surface can patina over time, reflecting the love and wear of the piece. every brass piece is sealed with Renaissance wax to minimize any reaction to your skin and body chemistry.
  • gold-plated | an industry standard layer of gold over base metal, usually brass. a cost effective option for a majority of pieces. made with recycled gold-plated materials, sourced domestically.
  • silver plated | an industry standard layer of silver over base metal, usually brass. a cost effective option for a majority of pieces. made with recycled silver-plated materials, sourced domestically.
  • sterling silver | material containing mostly pure silver. exposure to air will result in oxidization, but can be cleaned by buffing with a soft cloth.
  • gold-filled | a much thicker plating of high quality, recycled gold over a base metal. more cost effective than solid gold, but with the same long-lasting quality. exposure to chemicals may result in tarnishing, but can be cleaned by buffing with a soft cloth.
