What does the term "vintage" mean when used on a product listing?
Most of the vintage items I use in the making of my jewellery are from old factory stock. This means essentially they are what is known as "new-old stock", and these items have been warehoused for many years. Mostly I source this items from the USA, and they were largely originally produced in West Germany or Japan from the 1950s onwards. I love using these items, as the provide an element of vintage styling impossible to replicate with new supplies. Please note some of these items may show signs of ageing, which I feel adds to the vintage appeal, but please bear in mind when purchasing.
What does the term "raw brass" mean when used on a product listing?
Brass in one of my favourite materials to use in my designs. Whether new or vintage, it is nickel free and does not tarnish in the same way as plated items. Brass will develop a patina over time, but can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth or good old Brasso
