Bronze is a nickel free alloy made of copper and tin. It is less likely to tarnish than brass, and is also a stronger material. As bronze tarnishes over time you can clean it with a homemade paste. Just take a little lemon juice and baking soda and apply it to the wire with a q-tip or soft cloth. Let it stay on for about 20 minutes, rinse and dry. You can also coat it with olive oil from time to time to prevent tarnishing. Try to avoid letting the lemon juice contact the beads. You may also choose to let your bronze jewelry age naturally.
The necklace in these photos is exactly the same one you will receive. Your necklace will arrive in a simple gift box, suitable for giving or storing your jewelry.
Every item I create is handmade and nickel free. Your jewelry should never cause you pain or irritation. If you continue to irritate your nickel allergy, your allergic reaction will become more severe over time. Nickel allergies can appear at any age and last a lifetime, so everyone can benefit from choosing nickel-free jewelry.
