Adorn by Emily Rose Policies & Additional Information: Please note for all jewelry containing sterling silver and/or natural copper, that these metals will tarnish with wear and can be polished to restore luster. Many beads that I use have irregularities in coloring, shape, size, patterns and more – the identicalness of beads is not guaranteed, this is what makes gemstones unique and why I incorporate them in my jewelry. For this reason, I often cannot make identical replications, and I typically choose not to. I enjoy making pieces that are truly one-of-a-kind so you can be certain no one else will be wearing the same piece. My underlying philosophy is that no two pieces will be the same. For this reason it may be very difficult to replace or re-create an item.
**IMPORTANT** The majority of stones I use are very hard, over a 6 or 7 on the Mohs hardness scale and are suitable for jewelry, but dropping of jewelry on hard ground can result in breaking or chipping of beads. Your jewelry should be treated with care, please do not wear while submerged in water, in the shower, or spray with perfume or other cosmetics. Many stones can be porous, even if you cannot see that with your naked eye, and depending on the most present elements, stones should not be exposed to solvents (including commercial jewelry cleaners).
