new hard.wear designs

On my quest to create more affordable jewelry that is durable and stylish, I decided to add nickel silver to my hard.wear line. There is no silver in nickel silver, it is an alloy used to create a common metal used in zippers, snaps, watchbands, paperclips, etc. Some people have a metal allergy, which makes them choose not to buy this more affordable metal. In thinking of that, I have completely sealed the backs of all my nickel necklaces with a non-toxic glaze so that there is no contact to the skin. Nickel silver will tarnish like regular silver, so the cleaning method is the same. A silver cloth will do.

Necklaces are available in single, double, or triple charms. Click the pictures to buy them on etsy!
