Handmade polymer clay Christmas earrings. All stud posts are stainless steel and nickel free. Ball posts, huggies and hoops are 18k gold plated brass, but are also nickel free. Polymer clay is sturdy, but not indestructible. Please do not bend your earrings. Avoid getting your earrings wet and store in a flat space to prevent scratches. Use a baby wipe to clean or a small amount of 100% acetone on a qtip for stubborn stains and small scratches. Brass pieces like jump rings and some posts may tarnish over time. To clean, you can use Brasso or white vinegar.
