We use a variety of materials. A few key ingredients are: charms are made of brass or pewter, chains are steel or aluminum, austrian crystal, vintage glass, pearls, lacquered cotton balls, rhinestones and resin. we use different plating finishes including sterling silver and 24K gold.
Our chain bracelets have a standard length of 7 3⁄4 —8 1⁄2”, this measurement is end to end- including the lobster claw and end rings. Most bracelets come with 2 end rings making the piece slightly adjustable. We offer several different lengths of necklaces, but the most common are 18”, 24” and 30” necklaces. Other fashion lengths include 20”, 36”, 50”, and 68”.
Need a custom size? We find that most everyone can find a piece of our jewelry that is appropriate for them; however, every once in a while we get requests for custom sizes. We will happily place a special order for you if possible; please email us for pricing.
VARIATIONS IN METAL PLATING:
All of our metal parts are plated with 24kt gold or sterling silver. They are finished with a variety of materials to increase durability~ including e-coat, lacquer, and hand antique. The original parts, however, come from many places and from tools that have been in use for decades. Given that, a range of finishes (brightness, darkness, etc.) is to be expected, and in fact is part of what makes JW/MA unique!
