Considered the key virtue of the heart, Compassion puts us in another person's shoes and allows us to experience more Truth, this in turns generates more Justice, creating the conditions for Peace, which fosters Hope and brings more Creativity and Love into our lives. Experiencing more love allows us to be more compassionate and thus the upward spiral continues adding meaning to our lives and attracting the best angels of our human nature.
Our white metal is German Silver, an alloy of 65% copper plus zinc, nickel and silver often used in making white gold. German silver is harder than sterling silver, it got its name from being used first in the German Kaisers silverware. In a few designs, like in Seven Metals or Sterling in Copper, we also use Sterling Silver (92.5% silver plus copper).
Our bracelets are made to be worn at all times and everywhere. We finish them with a thin layer of organic lacquer meant to wear off unnoticeably with use. If you wish to have immediate metal contact, simply wipe the inside of a bracelet with nail polish remover. All the metals we use are solid, with no platting to wear off, therefore any scratch or blemish can be easily removed with a polishing cloth, brass polish, or by rubbing with a lemon rind and ashes. The easiest way to keep our bracelets clean is by taking showers with them on. With this minimal care they should age gracefully with you and last for generations.
