How To Remove Patina From Your Brass Jewelry

I don’t offer much in the way of brass jewelry, but these cuffs have been faves of mine forever and I’ve kept them in the lineup for quite some time because of it. If you love them too, this blog post may come in handy for you!

brass cuff love…

I’ll make this super easy. Toothpaste, ketchup, vinegar - all things you have around the house that can double as brass jewelry cleaner!

Brass is a metal that will quickly oxidize and develop a patina, especially if exposed to sprays, chemicals, water, etc. While this is a process that lends to the uniqueness of each piece, some prefer to maintain that shiny new finish instead.

Below is a link to an article with 5 of the easiest ways to remove the majority of the patina that your brass pieces develop. There are lots of other methods out there, but these happen to be my faves and relatively easy so I thought I would share!

Obsessed Is An Understatement

If you've seen my social media posts this past week, you already know that I am completely and utterly obsessed with this new design!  I love a lot of personalized pieces, but this one takes the cake. 

Now maybe you're wondering why all the love for this piece when I've obviously personalized bar necklaces before?  Well, I'll tell you!  The combination of this bar size with the tiny font is just FAB - couple that with the stacked personalization, right alignment and, well, it's beyond visually appealing to me.  If I could send one of these to every one of you, I totally would! 

The biggest bonus of this design is that it looks amazing with one, two, three+ names.  Dots between names are perfect separators, so you can fill the bar and it doesn't look crowded. Don't want to go with names?  How about dates, roman numerals, your favorite word, mantra or quote?  I mean, the options are endless.

 

I feel like the pictures just can't completely convey everything that I love about this beauty, but I promise that it will have you swooning!  Click HERE or on the images to view the listing for this piece.

How would you personalize your bar?
